You Have to Believe in Hitchcock’s “McGuffin” to Be in Politics
Biderman on poltics and the need to change the constitution.
There seems to be little doubt that we need a new constitution, or at least a new way of governing ourselves. The response to my post July 4 rant that we need a constitutional convention was mostly positive. There were several who worried that a convention could get hijacked by nutcases but almost everybody seems to agree that what we have got now is not working.
Upon reflection, I think that we most certainly will be having some sort of new constitutional convention in the future. There are two ways it will happen. The first is as a result of our paternalistic government going bust in trying to provide everything to everybody. In essence we will be forced to start over; and hopefully a convention will be peaceful.
