The 1787 Constitution of the United States, established as the supreme law of the land at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, was a great innovation in its day. It represented Novus Ordo Seclorum, a new order of the ages,.
But since the Civil War amendments and the legal end of color caste slavery, we no longer need a Senate, House, Electoral College, or any of the "Great Compromise" legal machinery which has contributed to structural racism in our nation. Our social compact, as represented by our foundational documents, is due for an upgrade.
What might our new governance look like? What news would we the people need to effectively function as citizens under a second American Novus Ordo Seclorum, designed to respect and protect all human beings, species, and the planet?
