      so I risk reading my own views into it, but I think this says it:

      If we are not to abandon constitutionalism entirely, then we might at least understand it as a place for discussion, a demand that we make a good-faith effort to understand the views of others, rather than as a tool to force others to give up their moral and political judgments.
      Since you see a surfeit of discussion on the matter, I don't think you see this call for reconsideration in the same light I do, though.
