Describe two ways in which political institutions might limit the impact of Supreme Court decisions?

Just throwing some ideas out there... 1. An amendment to the constitution can be made if the Supreme court's decision is unpopular. (2/3 of both houses or a state convention to propose) 2. New laws can be made that kind of skirt around the rules- we all know the government can be sly. 3. The executive branch does not have to enforce the Supreme court's decision. example: even though the supreme court said that "relocating" the Native Americans was in violation of the constitution, Andrew Jackson still led on with the trail of tears.

Why do civilization rise and falls?

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the nightto undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. Marcus Tullius Cicero
