‘Harold J. Berman, former professor of law at Harvard Law school...explains that today...foundational beliefs are rapidly disappearing, not only from the minds of philosophers, but from “the minds of lawmakers, judges, lawyers, law teachers...the historical soil of the Western legal tradition is being washed away in the twentieth century, and the tradition itself is threatened to collapse”...Postmodernists are intent on eliminating religious roots and transcendent qualities from Western law. They desire more fragmentation and subjectivity, and less objective morality than the Judeo-Christian tradition demands. In the end, they are intent on creating and using their own brand of social justice merely for left-wing political purposes.’
