Troubleshooting the Constitution in Our Politics, Economy, and Government: List of Resources

Why I support Move to Amend

The text of the We the People Amendment (movetoamend.org), our proposed candidate for the 28th Amendment, is elegant in its utter logic and simplicity, and will be revolutionary in its impact on future interpretations of constitutional law. In the spirit of intersectionality that may strengthen our case for passage of the 28th Amendment, I’ve cast the net wide to compile this large list of resources — essentially a bibliography — that inform domestic and global efforts to make gains against injustice, inequality, and general corporate malfeasance. Many contributors of the source materials referenced in this list of entries tilt progressive, others less so, some even tilt conservative; all offer analyses and findings that can interest, anger, and perhaps inspire us to take action.

Many of these entries encompass evidence of corporate abuse of the Bill of Rights and Article 1 of the Constitution so well documented in The Path to the 28th Amendment (movetoamend.org), and are loosely grouped to highlight many thorny issues that specifically apply to Americans and our government, as well as some pressing issues that demand a global response.

Arguably, what these entries do offer is the chance for Move to Amend to build new alliances, as we more broadly envision what a well-functioning democracy for all can truly be, perhaps by moving Toward a People's Constitution (peoplesconstitution.us). As one who has not invested the effort and funds to be in the legal profession, I regard myself as less deferential to the U.S. Constitution than are the professional attorneys and judges, who must know and apply the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in rightly upholding our nation’s admirable adherence to the “rule of law.” The problem is not “rule of law” per se, but how this rule of law has too often been misconstrued to serve cultural, political, and economic interests throughout our history, based on narrow, self-serving constitutional interpretation, grinding into an ossified reading of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as appropriate for said documents’ “sacred and inviolable” text. We must break free of this mindset. Start with the following entries (additional opinions about rights appear throughout the bibliography):

I have read or perused only a few of the many books and articles listed here, as well as more of the podcasts, videos, and websites listed. I selected most of these works because excerpts and reviews and often provocative titles piqued my interest. Most entries here are new, published or released within the last few years. Feel free to start with entries that really rock your boat and motivate you to act! For me, those entries would be the books and articles questioning so-called “corporate constitutional rights” and “corporate personhood,” so I can better anticipate or counter arguments surrounding the We the People Amendment (movetoamend.org). To get acquainted with so-called “corporate constitutional rights” and “corporate personhood,” start with the following:

We'll hear from the person who got the 27th amendment ratified later. But the push to add a 28th is happening now. We hear from one of those voices too.

Giant corporations are retooling their business models, setting their sights on the climate problem and hoping to capitalize on offshore wind. But some of these corporations — including BP and Shell — are the same companies arguably responsible for climate change in the first place. Windfall is the story of a promising green technology and the potential of wind power in a changing climate. And it's a story about power... and who has the power to reshape our energy future.” NHPR Podcast series: Outside/In (June 24 - July 22, 2021).  Outside/In : NPR
