It’s not the language that is evil, but the ideas expressed–racial discrimination and notions of a class system based on wealth and ethnic predominance are evil. They would be no less evil if couched in the daintiest words and phrases. Careless and willful ignorance are evil as well.
Evil can’t be explained away and mustn’t be excused.

Ryn. If ,as you say, you interpret the Constitution by the meaning of the words in 1789 then you should read Article 3. Which gives the SCOTUS the power to decide cases on appeal. Which is what the SCOTUS does. So, any decision made by the SCOTUS in deciding what the words of the Constitution mean is in line with the orignal intent of Article 3.
General welfare is in the Constitution twice–it is no accident. There is no reason to think it meant then other than it means today–anything the legislature deems as for the good of the country.
