A few years back, we spoke to the authors of a book aimed at young people called “Fault Lines in the Constitution – The Framers, their Fights and the Flaws that Affect Us Today” that pointed out the faults in the constitution with stories and examples from current and historical events. An updated edition of the book came out last year in paperback.

If we’ve learned anything over the past year and a half it’s that the constitution has some gaps. The United States Constitution has a lot of fans. To hear some politicians and pundits talk you would think it was the most perfect document ever drafted. But when you stop and really look into it, this puppy has some issues.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll listen to a conversation I had last year with the authors of a book for students outlining the many fault lines of the constitution.
