Barry Messiah on our Essentially Flawed Constitution

On the Supreme Court:

"It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution."

" radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical."

"...the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth"

"I think there was a tendancy to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change."
