2020 and “inventing” constitutional representation
As We the People have the collective experience known as the next 48 months, our constitutional story is somewhat inverted; we have the constitutional requirements (nothing has to be amended, for example), we only need people to experience our Constitution as it is.
Friedrich Nietzsche’s Daybreak: Thoughts on the prejudices of morality (1881) is divided into five books and 575 aphorisms. Aphorism 119 is presented today in part and inverted – the ending first – with the last sentences, 22 thru 25, acting as a beginning:
– What then are our experiences?
Much more that which we put into them than that which they already contain!
Or must we go so far as to say: in themselves they contain nothing?
To experience is to invent? –
*Next Up: Tomorrow, 17 April, and the fourth part of 2020 Nietzsche Daybreak aphorism 119.
