After listening to the first episode of the Constitutional podcast, I saw a silver lining to the way slavery was originally approached. (I think. I’m in a hurry and need to re-listen before being definite.)
See, they set a time limit before the idea of slavery as a yea or nay could be opened again. Not a very morally appealing idea.
It means that they were definitely qualifying the Constitution as a living document; you don’t say “we’ll deal with this later” on a document which is to be taken as gospel from its inception.
So anyone who uses the term “originalist”, or whatever the hell it means when you say that the Constitution in its original form is the true law, stare at this concept until you can logically reconcile it.
