Hannah Arendt’s value clarity was noteworthy; to requote: “Value is the quality a thing can never possess in privacy but acquires automatically the moment it appears in public.”
The thirty Thousand and Seventh Amendment are both public, so how is it they exhibit so little power?
Jean Baudrillard (political theorist) adds a bit to Arendt’s value definition with the “fourth order” and the workings of the hyperreal; Bruce Dold of the Chicago Tribune comes to mind as an example of a hyperrealist; our Constitution is clear (see picture above) and yet First Amendment corporations remain silent.
Silence concerning the representation of We the People according to our numbers is Constitutional decadence.
