Some basics of the Constitution 2.0

Improve the greatest secular document in human history?  No problem…now.  Not after a few centuries of power-mongers assailing and subverting it.  We’ve got plenty of abuses to address.  And for all their rightful pessimism about flawed humanity, the Founders still gave us too … Continue reading
