Justice Ginsburg on the Evolving Constitution
Michael Ramsey

At the Wall Street Journal Law Blog, Steve Eder: Justice Ginsburg on Opera and the Constitution:

“The founders of our country were great men with a vision, Justice Ginsburg said. “They were held back from realizing their idea by the times in which they lived.[”]

But, she added, their notion was that society would evolve and that the clauses of the Constitution would grow with society.

“The Constitution would always be in tune with society that the law is meant to serve.”
