Sandy Levinson — Is America Governable? The tapes

John Roland, a dedicated libertarian who runs and has placed many important documents of American constitutional history on the Internet. He taped all of the sessions at the conference held last week at the University of Texas Law School last week and has been kind enough to make them available to one and all. I am grateful to him for his generosity. You can find each of the eight sessions, seven panels and Larry Lessig's Friday luncheon talk below. With some trepidation, I am opening this for discussion, the trepidation coming primarily from the fact that the topics of the panels were certainly far ranging and it will be more difficult than usual to have a truly coherent discussion. Still, I hope that those of you who have the patience to work through any or all the sessions find them as interesting as they were for the participants and live audience.

If you watch nothing else, you should look at the Larry Lessig's talk at least long enough to see the astonishing card passed out to all newly-elected Democratic members of Congress relating to how they should spend their days.
