Thoughts on Judicial Term Limits

Would term limits help to solve the judicial activism problem, or would they merely make matters worse? As a general rule, my default assumption is that the constitutional structure is sound and should be left untouched. Our Constitution has served us well for more than 200 years, and I would prefer to leave it "as is" until and unless an overwhelming case is made that an amendment is necessary. Such a compelling case has not been made in regards to judicial term limits, in my view. I’ve recently written a piece on this subject here, for those who are interested in reading more.
