Kavanaugh Confirmation: Former Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy Says We’re Seeing The ‘Death and Decline of Democracy’

Former Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy warned high schoolers, as the toxic fight over confirming Brett Kavanaugh to replace him on the court continues, that the country is seeing the “death and decline of democracy.”

“Perhaps we didn’t do too good a job teaching the importance of preserving democracy by an enlightened civic discourse,” Kennedy said during an appearance at a high school in his hometown of Sacramento, California. “In the first part of this century we’re seeing the death and decline of democracy.”
