Limited Government, Unlimited Administration: Is it Possible to Restore Constitutionalism?

Obviously, there is considerable distance between the constitutional discourse of 1788 and the relevant conversations of 2008. What changed?

There are two ways to approach that question. The first, and conceptually most straightforward, approach is simply to describe changes in governing constitutional doctrine, which requires describing the kind of government permitted by the Constitution of 1788 and then comparing it to modern institutions. Everyone knows, at some level, that modern government and the Constitution are a poor fit, but it is not clear that everyone knows just how wide a gap has emerged over two centuries. The second, and conceptually trickier, approach is to try to understand why doctrine has moved so far away from the constitutional design and to use that understanding to formulate strategies for restoring the constitutional order.
