Industrial climate disruption is sufficiently complicated that arguing from authority - even a consensus of authorities - is not only justified, it's entirely logical.

In Roe v. Wade the Supreme Court had to extract a right to privacy from existing amendments, and there are critics who still claim that there is no right to privacy in the current Constitution. Amendment VI of the new Bill of Rights would make a right to privacy explicit.

The federal government is presently captive to people who are trying to push their own personal religious beliefs and morality on the rest of the country. This installment of an updated Bill of Rights would fix that.

For the first order of business in a new Bill of Rights, let's strip away the 2-party system and guarantee that every political party with at least 5% of the electorate is represented in all legislative bodies AND that legislators are apportioned out according to the proportion each party represents.
 
Amendment I
No political party representing at least five percent of the electorate shall be denied direct representation in the legislature. All legislative bodies shall be comprised proportionally according to the populations represented and all elected officials shall be selected by direct vote of the people.

Michael Mann's defamation lawsuit is proceeding to the discovery phase and the easily disproved false claims in the National Review's and Mark Steyn's latest motions to dismiss are unconvincing.

Today in the New Bill of Rights - update the 2nd Amendment to require that the federal government establish pre-ownership guidelines (safety training, anyone?) and that explicitly says "firearms" - no rocket launchers for you! I've got a couple of misgivings, but on the whole it's a LOT better than the vague wording of the 2nd Amendment today.

When the original Bill of Rights was written, only government was powerful enough to suppress assembly, press, and speech. Now corporations are too, and so the 2nd Amendment of a new Bill of Rights protects employees from suppression of their free speech by their employers.

My Scholars & Rogues cofounder Sam Smith has decided to give up political blogging (but not blogging in general, thankfully) but has chosen to go out with quite a bang - a reworked Bill of Rights that is designed to strip corruption and corporate influence out of the governing of our country. It proves to be a fascinating exercise, so I'll be sharing this entire series, day by day, starting with today's introduction and ground rules. Please consider joining us for the next couple of weeks as we debate a new Bill of Rights.

And if you think what see would be interesting to your own friends, please let them know as well. There may not be a good way to get these changes into the actual Constitution at this time, but having a guiding document of principles never hurts.
