Updating the Constitution: Applying 250 Years of Experience with One of the World’s Most Important Documents
By: Carl D. Veley
About the Book
The Constitution, written in 1787, was brilliant and a major step toward The Rule of Law, and Government by ordinary people, but technical and social developments have caused the USA Government to evolve into a system the Constitution was intended to prevent. This book reviews objectives of The Founding Fathers, explains what went wrong, discusses inevitable consequences of ignoring needed changes, and outlines how 21st century technology can correct problems that obstruct the Constitution’s function.
