The Declaration of Independence states that “all men are created equal” and guarantees that our government will protect our individual rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
The Constitution does not guarantee equality. While we are created as equals, it’s up to each of us to secure our happiness from that point forward with little to no interference from our givernment. This is called “freedom” and Lessig’s plan won’t secure that. In fact, it will hasten its demise by forcing U.S. citizens at gunpoint to comply to a politician’s idea of equality.
