On Constitutional Disobedience
Louis Michael Seidman talked about his book, On Constitutional Disobedience, in which he argues that it’s time to stop treating the Constitution as a sacred document that needs to be obeyed at all costs. He argued that people who are alive now should not have to be shackled by a document that was created hundreds of years ago by people who couldn’t possibly understand what the country is like today. This interview, recorded at Georgetown University Law Center, is part of Book TV’s College Series. close
