Abstract

As one of the US’ founding documents, the constitution is venerated by politicians and members of the public alike. In this Long Read, Hudson Meadwell writes that the growing originalist interpretations of the constitution and the republican form of government it sets out are conservative and may be in fact be incompatible with, or a rival to, the notion of America’s democratic ideals.
