Undemocratic Constitution

An interesting essay by Sanford Levinson on the regressive elements of the US Constitution. A brief excerpt:
To believe that our Constitution is perfect — or even truly adequate to the world we live in — is equivalent to believing that it is safe to continue driving a car with bad brakes and dangerously worn tires. Even if we have been able to make trips safely in the past, we are criminally negligent in believing that we can continue to do so.
