Less Freedom?

While in Egypt this year, January 30 to be precise, Associate U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg was asked what she thought of Egypt modeling its new Constitution on the one used by the US. 

Ruth Bader Ginsberg suggested that Egypt not model itself after what she called the dusty and obsolete US Constitution, but after either South Africa’s or Canada’s Constitutions.  Her reasoning was that the Federal Government in the U.S. does not have enough powers while the South African and Canadian models do. 

In short, she prefers less individual freedom, unlike what our US Constitution was intended to grant us.
