XI.
CONCLUSIONS

... An elective despotism was not the government we fought for ...

— Thomas Jefferson

As THIS book goes to press, there is every indication that the discredited judiciary bill of 1937 will be ultimately defeated. Numerous events and diverse forces have combined to foreshadow its doom. Still more important, the elaborate case which the President built up to support his demand for a "rubber-stamp" Court has crumbled wherever it has been touched.

From the moment his extraordinary message was sent to Congress the President was on the defensive. When the Senate Judiciary Committee began to examine the proposal critically, through its extended hearings, the opposition was gradually unified into a powerful chorus of protest. Distinguished witnesses from all parts of the Nation and from virtually all classes of people joined in thoughtful condemnation of the bill. Seldom has there been a more impressive demonstration of the democratic technique in law-making. The result, of course, was to strip the measure of every vestige of justification, and to bring an adverse vote from the committee.
