Oddly, the Constitution has granted no enforcement powers to the Supreme Court. Serious people are debating whether a person, state, or institution could simply ignore the Supreme Court and get away with it.

It benefits the centers of power I listed in the OP. The "Sinister Six" justices are demonstrating their allegiance to these power centers.
Quote:The counters would be to expand the court, define its abilities more clearly, put term limits on justices, clarify what is and is not disqualifying (ethics rules, recusal rules and so on) and potentially things like what warrants impeachment of a justice.
Or ignore the Court altogether. This may be tested sooner than we think. New York State could well decide to defy the Bruen ruling. Don't mess with New Yorkers!
