Wise words here from former Supreme Court Justice William Brennan, on the problems with “originalism” when it comes to the U.S. Constitution…

“For the genius of the Constitution rests not in any static meaning it might have had in a world that is dead and gone, but in the adaptability of its great principles to cope with current problems and current needs.”

“If we are to be as a shining city upon a hill, it will be because of our ceaseless pursuit of the constitutional ideal of human dignity.”  

— former Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Jr.

And if you insist on being an “originalist,” you can’t cherry-pick your interpretations of the Constitution.
