Sovereign Immunity is Over with JASTA

The doctrine of absolute sovereign immunity is irrational. It is therefore baseless. The real overarching issue is imperialism and geopolitics. The sovereignty of Saudi Arabia, for instance, is a fiction concocted for the interests above and behind control of oil resources. Wars of aggression to expand such control are imperialistic. The issue of the human right to procure freedom from this control in order to provide advancement of potential future well being of citizenry overrules the system of supposed "noblesse oblige" whatever permutation that might take.

The United States Constitution in essence already ended sovereign immunity by replacing it with a principle first and foremost of promotion of the future welfare of its citizens.It is that principle which is sovereign and relegates all other claim subordinate to it.
