Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution

Experience. I expect that it will be a cold day in hell before we see the implementation of what retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens proposes in his book, Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution. Written for a general audience, Justice Stevens articulates in plain language why he thinks these changes are needed. While he made his case successfully to me, on most of these issues his opinion was in the minority while he served on the Court. This restatement of his dissent to a wider audience might broaden understanding of the issues, but the political climate and the process for amending the constitution make his proposals highly unlikely to become law.
