Constitutional law Professor Kermit Roosevelt presented a talk titled: “The Constitution and Declaration of Independence: A Contrary View.” Professor Roosevelt, the great-great-grandson of Theodore Roosevelt, argued that the America of today did not emerge from the Revolution and that U.S. values should not be traced back to the Founders; instead, he argued that through failures and reinventions, the Constitution should be used as a tool to create modern core values.
