Paul Campos & the Constitution
But like professors Campos and Levinson, I too have fallen out of love with the Constitution. A document can never limit the power of a government, because it is “interpreted” by that same government itself. It is inevitable that, over time, the Supreme Court will, by and large, “discover”
that the Constitution authorizes ever greater power to its host. What we really need are highly decentralized governments, even down to individual communities. Democracy can work only on a very small scale. Mass democracy invariably becomes an engine to allow favored interests (large corporations, government bureaucracies, defense contractors, big banks, etc.) to loot the mass of productive citizens who are just trying to live their lives in peace.
