Wilson understood that the limits placed upon the power of the national government by the Constitution, and it limited the Progressives/liberals need to see it "relaxed" if not removed. You see having a Constitution grounded in the natural-rights principles of the Declaration of Independence was quite an obstacle for him. This meant, for Wilson, that both the Declaration and the Constitution had to be understood anew through a Progressive lens. So what did Wilson do? he reinterpretated the Founding. Wilson opposed the historical argument. Wilson even suggested that the Declaration ought to be understood by excluding from it the foundational statements on equality and natural rights contained in its first two paragraphs. In a 1911 address (which I will gladly see if I can find it on the internet), Wilson remarked that “the rhetorical introduction of the Declaration of Independence is the least part of it…. If you want to understand the real Declaration of Independence, do not repeat the preface.”
You know you and Wilson share a lot in common. Your standard of right has been replaced by the ideologies of multiculturalism and “value-neutral” positivism. That is why your ideology explained earlier is all over the map. Cheers!
