Our unconstitutional republic

Yesterday, commenting on Terence Jeffrey’s article arguing that the Social Security Act is unconstitutional, I said that “we need to know the geography of the country, constitutionally speaking, in which we live.” The phrase was not terribly clear. See Leonard D.’s comment (in which he quotes Mencius Moldbug’s description of our “real” but unwritten constitution), and my reply.

UPDATE: the exchange between Leonard and me has continued, with Mencius Moldbug and others also joining the fray.
