I have posted The Constitution: Myths and Realities at Realities. This very long article reworks and consolidates many posts at Politics & Prosperity. It’s worth your time if you haven’t thought critically about the role of the States in the creation of the Constitution, the legality of secession, and much more, including a strong argument that Americans aren’t morally bound by the Constitution.
The article runs 15,000 words, but still omits much relevant material from this blog. Thus the links to 21 posts in the pingbacks at the bottom of the article. Follow the links there for complementary and supplementary readings.
