The Lunacy of Piers Morgan Taken to its Logical Conclusion

Pendark's Perceptions

"If we are to say that it was the object and not the principle; which is exactly what Morgan said; then we must be prepared to argue that the words written in any of the documents of that era were written only to protect the object named as it existed in that era and not the principle at hand.
If we are to assume that what is written in The Constitution only applies to the direct objects cited in the day and age it was written, then we must also assume only the states that existed at the time of the ratification of the Constitution are protected by the clauses affecting states.
If we are to accept the logic that it was merely the object of the time protected by the words written and not the principle of the matter in perpetuity; then we must also assume that the words in the preamble to The Bill of rights:
“THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.”
Means only—
The number of states existing at the time of ratification. (As any states to follow would be more modern and therefor more powerful and more dangerous.) Misconstruction or abuse of only the powers of government existing at the time of ratification. (As any powers of government to follow would be devised according to their time and therefor more powerful and dangerous.)
Declaratory, restrictive clauses only applying to the laws of the time; (since any laws after that would be created in different times and could potentially be more powerful and thus more dangerous.) Extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, as only the government of that time and the confidence of the public of that time; since the public at large would by the very virtue of their creation be in more advanced times and therefor more powerful and potentially dangerous.
We must, given this logic, further assume that ONLY the original 10 Amendments to the Constitution may be applied to any time; (as any Amendment thereto beyond the ten original Amendments; was written in a later period of time and thus is more modern and more powerful; thus more potentially dangerous.)"
