I love Andrew Guase, but I don't know where he gets his facts concerning the law. Erie v Tompkins held that there is no Federal common law.

"There is no federal general common law. Congress has no power to declare substantive rules of common law applicable in a State whether they be local in their nature or "general," whether they be commercial law or a part of the law of torts. And no clause in the Constitution purports to confer such a power upon the federal courts. Except in matters governed by the Federal Constitution or by Acts of Congress, the law to be applied in any case is the law of the State. And whether the law of the State shall be declared by its legislature in a statute or by its highest court in a decision is not a matter of federal concern."

That's true, but that decision was basically bogus, since it overturned the previously held notion since the start of the U.S. federal courts that they did have the power to create federal common law, where Congress hadn't specifically legislated otherwise.

And unlike slavery, it's not about some fundamental human right that should've been protected from the beginning, to those who would make the argument that just because it was precedent doesn't mean it shouldn't be overturned.
