Possibly. But if we can spend trillions over a decade playing at failed nation building in the Middle East, we can spend those same trillions over the next decade doing actual nation building here at home.
I agree, but I just don’t think the “burn it all down” approach is achievable or desirable. Equal Representation is an inalienable right that is part of the American soul, and trying to revoke it, or even rework it extensively, will be met with fierce resistance from all sides.
Instead, working to make voter registration and voting itself easier for all Americans, undoing decades of redistricting and gerrymandering around the country, and improving the nation’s infrastructure so that the population is better distributed and more places are economically viable achieves a similar result without destroying an American ideal in the process.
The concentration of economic prosperity around urban centers is nearly as outdated as the 18th century document we’re discussing. The only reason for it is that in the 18th-20th centuries the best infrastructure was located around densely populated urban centers. In the 21st century and beyond, with all the science and technology we have available to us, there is no reason the United States cannot expand it’s infrastructure throughout the country and relieve the ridiculous housing/education/transportation problems faced by urban centers while bringing prosperity to formerly rural areas. Sure, it would take the creation of a New New Deal of sorts, and the cooperation or coercion of several powerful industries (Oil & Gas, Telecom, etc.), but is that really more far-fetched than torching and rewriting the Constitution?
