Prominent Law Professor Says We Should Throw Out the U.S. Constitution

University of Texas law professor Sandy Levinson (he’s also a visiting professor at Harvard) is one of the most respected constitutional law scholars in the country, and, increasingly, one of the most iconoclastic. Levinson’s scholarly crusade been calling attention to the Constitution’s “hard-wired” features (e.g., the Senate, life tenure for Supreme Court justices, the difficulty of removing presidents) that he believes makes America fundamentally undemocratic. Levinson has come to the conclusion that “the system just does not work anymore. The output fails. It’s not a government that can solve problems…”
