Canon closed? Political Revelation Ceased?

Article V of the US Constitution: (my emphasis)

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

As much as I put some hope in certain leaders in the US, I am more and more convinced that the system itself is in need of revision.  The political process is held in low esteem.  A revival may be in order.  A New Constitutional Convention, like a Pentecostal Awakening, is what I think is required.

  1. i wouldn’t use the phase Pentecostal Awakening because that would scare off a lot of people 😉

    in any case, i think Lessig has a good point on the corruption in government and politics.

    cheers.
