...that the author also noted in the rest of that quote that if angels governed us, then no Constitution would be necessary.

The logic is essentially, "Men are not angels, therefore government is needed. However, government is made of these same non-angels, therefore restrictions are needed on government."

Personally, I'm a Constitutionalist (I do like the Articles of Confederation better, though), but I'm open to anarchism. I'd like to see one of those proposed seasteads provide a case study in how it'd work.
