A “more perfect union?”

The other day, Nadia was listenting to her customized Pandora radio station and a song I had never heard came on.

It took me a minute, but then I realized that they were actually singing the Preamble to the Constitution.

Through the magic of YouTube, I found the song (here it is)

First off, I found myself getting emotional about it in a way that I never had before.

Second, I started to think about it, particularly the phrase “establish a more perfect union.”

What I don’t get is: how can something be “more perfect?”

Either it’s perfect or not.

Anyway, something to think about this New Year.
