The Soros-funded conference on the Constitution in 2020 continued at Yale Law School yesterday. Our first report introduced the conference and covered Friday’s proceedings: “The $80,000 misunderstanding.” The full conference schedule is available here.
Yesterday morning the panel on social and economic inequality included Georgetown Law Professor Robin West, Stanford Law Professor Richard Ford and others. We were unable to compensate our conference reporter sufficiently to preclude boredom from inducing an early exit, reflected here in the conclusion of the notes with Ford’s remarks:
–does Equal Protection clause have relevance to progressive cause? Born out of struggle of enslaved laborers
–inconsistent with state that does little or nothing about social and economic inequalities
–implies the existence of positive welfare rights
