    Richard Primus in Part 3 of his Yale Law Journal note ( http://heinonline.org/HOL/Page?collection=journals&handle=hein.journals/ylr106&id=441 ) has an excellent discussion of the difficulty the problem of a hypothetical Nazi takeover of the U.S. poses for constitutional theorists. I’ve long thought that Hand’s first paragraph above is essentially the only answer.

    I have this Hand quote on the front-page of my Constitutional Law syllabus, in an effort to “trouble” a little bit (what I find to be) many students’ assumption that the Court (and courts) are what take care of our Constitution for us.
