723: David Blight, part 2: A Constitutional Amendment on Stewardship Based on the Thirteenth and John Locke

I’ve spoken to several guests about the idea of a constitutional stewardship amendment in the style of the Thirteenth Amendment, complementary to a Green Amendment. Amendments tend to pass in waves so I could see them helping build a movement together.

David knows as much about the history of the need for the Thirteenth Amendment, its evolution, and its passing. In this conversation I share some of what I learned since our first conversation. I read him as supportive of something new and promising. I’m biased since I wanted to hear what will motivate me. Listen for yourself to a conversation that may be an early part of a historical movement.

As I’ve said before, an amendment wouldn’t solve our environmental problems and it can only pass with overwhelming popular support, but the idea of it can make it possible and without it many environmental problems will never end.
