I am increasingly convinced that the existence of the Senate is the greatest single obstacle to social justice in the United States, even moreso now that it has compounded its anti-democratic character and adopted a de facto supermajority requirement for all legislation. In the ideal world, not only would the Senate be abolished, but so would their logical presupposition: quasi-sovereign “states.” If I were given the ability to write a new constitution for the US, I would eliminate the concept of states altogether and turn them into flexible administrative units whose borders were periodically redrawn.]

There is an urgent need for a re-look at the Indian Constitution and rethink on the idea of nation and its administration. [TNM]
