Triumphant majoritarianism

I stole this post's title from this op-ed in Sunday's Post. By all means go and read it, it makes a strong, if indirect, case that the current conservative majority wishes to establish such a majoritarian rule and, in the process, obliterate minority interests in this country. Why else do away with judicial review and the filibuster if not to crush the two instruments that really do protect under-represented minorities in this country?
