There’s a Quiet Revolution going on... Can we stop it? Does the Constitution forbid social security? Minimum wages? Workplace safety laws? Does the Constitution authorize torture? Over the past quarter century, an increasingly influential movement on the far right has waged a quiet war to undermine the Constitution. Ultra-conservative judges, professors, funders, think tanks, lawmakers and activists are pursuing an agenda that would radically transform American life.

Recently, hosted by the School of Law’s American Constitution Society, Nan Aron, President of Alliance for Justice, came to the School of Law to introduce and show a short film, Quiet Revolution, hosted by Bradley Whitford. The ensuing lively conversation spanned topics from Supreme Court jurisprudence to judicial reform and electoral politics.
