Sujit Choudhry – Here’s What He Stands For

Sujit Choudhry is a professor of law within the ranks of ever-prestigious University of California, Berkeley. He’s also worked at New York University, the University of Toronto, and advised virtually countless processes of forming legal constitutions for up-and-coming countries hoping to establish themselves (blogs.law.nyu.edu).

Mr. Choudhry wears many hats, one of which is that of a widely-published author. In Constitutional Democracies in China?, a book with one chapter by none other than Choudhry himself, the Berkeley professor of law references most of his writings to a December 2017 tweet by Eric Holder, once the federal Attorney General under the leadership of now-former President Barack Obama.

More or less, the tweet got across the point that if Robert Mueller was fired, the American people should be highly concerned with what’s going on in government.

Sujit Choudhry described Holder’s four-month-old tweet by breaking it down into the two central concepts that it’s based on. The first of these is that every nation’s constituents must both individually and collectively decide when it will no longer deal with its own government. In ideal scenarios, any nation’s members would overthrow its government when it doesn’t agree with how well it’s doing, but this, unfortunately, just doesn’t happen as it should.

Eric Holder referred to the proverbial line in between what’s acceptable and what’s not as the “red line.” The other concept, in Choudhry’s mind, that was discussed by Holder is that Americans will inevitably figure out when it’s time to collectively protest. However, according to Choudhry, there’s no “inevitable” to it, meaning some populations are simply too complacent to stop anything terrible from happening.

Choudhry also says that that proverbial red line hasn’t been crossed yet, and it may or not be for some time. While it’s not important to predict when it will be reached in any nation’s governance, it is, in fact, important for every part of a nation’s population to be aware of the red line and when to push it.
