Changing the US constitution wouldn’t “de-incapacitate”

Paul Street’s article about the 99% being incapacitated was very interesting.  But I can’t resist pointing out that, while it’s ludicrous that the US constituion be so hard to change, making it easier to change wouldn’t necessarily make much of a difference: the swiss constitution can be changed easily enough (50% majority of both the popular vote and the cantons (read “states”)) that it does get changed several times a year.  Yet Switzerland is no leftist paradise and its population is not significantly less incapacitated.
