I had an opportunity once to attend a graduate summer school program in Political Philosophy at Notre Dame through the Pan-American Institute for the Political Sciences. There were about a dozen Americans, 30 Colombians (this is why the only dance I know is the meringue; the unoffical Colombian motto is, "First, we must dance." But I digress), and a handful each of Mexicans and Old Europeans. There was also a Czech priest who'd spent his life more or less underground or in various prisons, who had come to study constitutionalism because he was an important part of the committee to draft the new, free, Czech constitution. A fascinating person, and I thought of him as I read this piece on Ed Erler, a Claremonster who's been helping the Iraquis draft their new constitution. Curtsy to The Remedy.
