One gets a whiff of the sense that they think originalism is a clever piece of
political jujitsu rather than the way a strong nation should govern itself. A frank
acknowledgment of the power of the living Constitution has its appeal. After all,
the country made itself stronger, more egalitarian, more effective in the world
precisely during the mid-twentieth-century period when jurists were most willing

This Review concludes by identifying a common theme connecting the concerns
expressed here about Living Originalism. That common theme is the difference
between constitutional theory in an ideal world and constitutional theory in the
fallen world we inhabit. In this fallen world, our adversaries may not fight fair, we
may feel disconnected from the past, and our words may have effects in the world
that we do not intend but that we ignore at our peril. I. LIVING ORIGINALISM As a
