Conservative Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said that Americans are "more interested in their iPhones than their Constitution," according to a recently released book.

"I think we as citizens have lost interest and that's been my disappointment," Thomas said in an interview. "That certainly was something that bothered Justice Scalia, that people tend to be more interested in their iPhones than their Constitution. They're interested in what they want rather than what is right as a country.

In the book, Thomas argued that America's alleged lack of interest in the Constitution might lead to a loss of personal liberty.

"You protect your liberty. It's your country. [The Supreme Court is] one part of the effort, and it is the obligation of the citizens to at least know what their liberties are and to be informed," he said.

"I think we are allowing ourselves to be ruled when we turn all that over to someone else and we're saying, 'Rule me.' Does it mean we get to make all the decisions? No," Thomas continued. "We have a system for doing that, but a part of that is our role in it, and our informed role in it, not what is said on TV, not what is said by some half-informed person."

I agree, along with social media.

But when many police officers break their oath during routine traffic stops, many people say one should just comply and submit? crazy

Many, many.....not just during traffic stops either. The loss of prudent law enforcement that follows the constitution is a sign of what is ahead.

No you should fight them tell their back up gets ther and they kill you. Submit and settle it in court. When that becomes not an option cops won't be stopping you on the streets alone and they won't come out of town unless in their armored vehicles.

As some of us remember, Joe Biden presided over the attempted high-tech lynching of Clarence Thomas. I don't believe Thomas to be a petty man, but karma payback is a beach.

You don't have to answer questions, so why do it. They'll lie tell you obstruction, but it's not. People get scared and submit.

Complacency is what got us here in our everyday life as well as settling for the lesser of 2 evils. Now we are being dumbed down as we are only looking to be entertained.

“A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.”

Yes, beginning with television.
