The last post described the distinction between substantive and procedural rights, and the importance of that distinction. In this post, I look more closely at the problem of procedural rights and explain how they block important reforms.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s struggles over whether to apply the first eight amendments of the Constitution to the states illustrate the problem with procedural rights.
