Chapter 6 The Establishment Clause: Misreading or Myth? ... However, this myth
is less attributable to a misreading of the Bill of Rights than it is to a wholesale
substitution of constitutional text for an accessible metaphor. ... Jefferson—
inadvertently or cleverly—wove a rather intricate tapestry of religion, liberty, and

What often follows is a consequent misreading of the Chinese political scene,
which is more often than not driven by wishful thinking and tendentious distortion.
These intellectuals and academics are, for the most part, committed to the
socialist system and the regime that speaks in its name. These volumes seek to
let some of the more politically influential intellectuals speak for themselves, with
all their ideological inclinations and stylistic idiosyncrasies, which are no less
significant as ...

Second, large-scale actions such as federal antidiscrimination statutes are
supposed to be transferred down into the smallest locality and incorporated into
law and manners. Likewise, the experience of working with those and all other
laws is supposed to cycle back upward for administrative, judicial, and legislative
adjustment of the laws. 8 . Benjamin R. Barber, "Misreading Democracy," in

The core of his argument, that such claims are grounded on a misreading of
these provisions' creation, has much merit. Those legal scholars who developed
what they call the "Standard Model" of the Second Amendment have looked
closely at documents generated in the official debates over late-eighteenth-
century state and federal constitutions. Such research is necessary and important
, but it is insufficient, because unfortunately it examines only formal legislative

We should rewrite the Constitution in order to re-right American democracy.
When the Supreme Court shrinks our civil rights by misinterpreting a federal
statute, Congress can go back and amend the law to restore the original meaning
, something it has done frequently in the new age of judicial reactivism. In 1982,
for example, Congress amended the Voting Rights Act to make clear that the Act
legislates an “effects” test for discrimination against minorities in voting and not
an “intent” ...

seemingly unlimited economic opportunities for all now appeared to be a
wasteland. In the grip of economic forces they did not understand, unemployed
Euroamerican laborers blamed the Chinese for their difficulties. San Francisco's
heavily working-class Democratic wards elected municipal officers who reflected
their constituents' resentment. The Board of Supervisors passed many flagrantly

The California initiative was modeled on the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964
which, beginning with the Weber case in 1979, has been knowingly and willfully
misread by the Supreme Court. For proof of this assertion, consider the comment
made byJustice Sandra Day O'Connor in a 1987 case: “As Justice Scalia
illuminates with excruciating clarity, [this section of the Act] has been interpreted
by Weber and succeeding cases to permit what its language read literally would

But the other half of this argument is equally important: democracy itself, as a
form of governing in which citizens participate, requires care. A democratic state
in which citizens do not care about justice, about their role in controlling rulers, in
the rule of law itself, will not long remain a democracy. I hope that my argument is
not misread. We are living in an age in which “politics” has come to have such a
strained and empty meaning that it is possible to think that I am suggesting that ...

The ideological affinities between these parties need to be understood because
many philosophers who were not Nazis were members or supporters of the
DNVP or one of the many other right-wing political organizations that rejected the
democratic foundations of the Weimar Republic. Radically conservative, anti-
democratic, political views enjoyed wide support within the German universities;
and among philosophers these views were the norm rather than the exception. Of
