High Priestess Ginsburg Rebukes the Heathen

She is just as adamant in her insistence that an equally abstract entity called the "government" has "interests" that justify imposing on the property rights of private business owners.

"The exercise of religion is characteristic of natural persons, not artificial legal entities," Ginsburg complained in her dissent in the Court's recent Hobby Lobby ruling.  In defense of that proposition she cites John Marshall's description of a corporation as "an artificial being, invisible, intangible, and existing only in contemplation of law." In similar fashion, she quotes John Paul Stevens' observation that corporations "have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires."

Ginsburg appears to be a chromosome-level statist, which is why she doesn't understand that this descriptive language also applies to the fictive entity called "government." It, too, is an invisible, impersonal abstrationly in the minds of those who believe in it. The "government" has no body, parts, or passions. It has no hands save those that are raised by believers in violence against the infidels, and (to paraphrase Nietzsche) no wealth save that which was stolen in its name.
