Is the constitution still relevant?

An interesting take on the constitution by somebody who spent 40 years studying it.

My take? Like any ancient text it is a great foundation but it has to be interpreted in the context of changing conditions that could never possibly have been envisioned by the writers. I don’t see any problem keeping it and following it. Like all such ancient texts, however, it is too often twisted in ridiculous ways in an attempt to justify peoples own personal form of hate, bigotry, and stupidity.
