Original intent & constitutional intent

There is an "apple and tree" type difference between constitutional intent an the use of the word "original".

"A good portion of America have been sold on the Constitution as either an outdated piece of paper or as a "living document" that we change over time. So not even agreeing on original intent will solve the issue. "

I would guess that you mean "original constitutional intent". That is fairly broad including the package of prime rights needed to preserve; freedom, rights and the constitution as the rule of law.

Therein is a natural law discussion necessarily very much like the thread where free speech, or its fundamental purpose to a free society of enabling the sharing and understanding of information needed for survival.

A question:

Are people uplifted and made secure in their feelings regarding their lives, well being, futures etc., when many assemble and indentify their similar concerns and perceptions of what effects them all in agreement?

Can we stop doing all the things we are doing that we do not want to do while still doing what we need to do?
