But it could be said that no one can rightly be called an American legal scholar who does not understand that the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the animating purposes of all our laws — of the law. They are the soul of our Constitution. Without these rights, the body of law is a corpse — a soulless, purposeless, manipulable, disposable, dead, material thing. If Kagan does not know that, then she knows nothing of our law.
