Akhil Amar Guest Blogging at Volokh

Law law professor Akhil Amar is guest blogging at The Volokh Conspiracy.  And he's taking on the Conspirators.  He is arguably America's preeminent professor of constitutional law; therefore, his stuff is worth a careful read.

Here's the 9/7/12 Wall Street Journal Randy Barnett Book Review to which the Akil Amar guest blog is referring.

Isn't Amar's interpretation a way around the "rule of law"? Authority will still decide and/or determine what aspects of law will be defended. And "the people" (motivated by propaganda?) could sway the judiary as to the "unwritten constitution"! Isn't this a way to accomodate "God" in the cultural melieu of radical religionists? Then, where will America be? Our Constitutional government is a limited government, which is direct conflict with an expanded view of government via "God" (whether that is defined by Caesars/czars/kings or God ordained authorities)!
