The TL;DR version of this editorial is “The US Constitution is an impediment to our grand socialist utopia. We should get rid of it and decide everything by majoritarian rule.” It’s behind a paywall, just so you know. I’ll put an excerpt at the bottom. Under this scheme, there would be no Bill of Rights; nothing to stop the Government from censoring speech, banning religion, or even breaking down your door in the middle of the night and making you disappear. Nothing except the presumed goodness and decency of elected politicians. This is how the left wants it to be.
This article was actually cited by Trump-Hating NRO contributor Dan McLaughlin in an argument with Bull-worker
Stephen Hayes Jim Swift. Swift was arguing that Never-Trumpers like McLaughlin were wimps because they refuse to vote for Democrats to spite Trump. McLaughlin countered that voting for Democrats is voting to empower radical positions like the one espoused in the New York Times. “Sorry, I’m not gonna sign up with the people who argue that we need to get rid of the United States Constitution.” He is correct on this point.
