Om Madison's Music

Are you sitting down? It turns out that everything you learned about the First Amendment is wrong. For too long, weve been treating small, isolated snippets of the text as infallible gospel without looking at the masterpiece of the whole. Legal luminary Burt Neuborne argues that the structure of the First Amendment as well as of the entire Bill of Rights was more intentional than most people realize, beginning with the internal freedom of conscience and working outward to freedom of expression and finally freedom of public association. This design, Neuborne argues, was not to protect discrete individual rightssuch as the rights of corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence electionsbut to guarantee that the process of democracy continues without disenfranchisement, oppression, or injustice.Neuborne, who was the legal director of the ACLU and has argued numerous cases before the Supreme Court, invites us to hear the music within the form and content of Madisons carefully formulated text. When we hear Madisons music, a democratic ideal flowers in front of us, and we can see that the First Amendment gives us the tools to fight for campaign finance reform, the right to vote, equal rights in the military, the right to be full citizens, and the right to prevent corporations from riding roughshod over the weakest among us. Neuborne gives us an eloquent lesson in democracy that informs and inspires.
