“These developments reflect a remedial ‘shell game’ where, as discrete remedies are reduced or limited, we are told that equally effective alternatives exist; nevertheless, when implementation of those remedies is at issue, the same justifications are provided for limiting those remedial measures. It is not difficult to present cogent arguments as to the discrete inefficiencies and adverse effects flowing from the broad application of any specific remedial measure. But when all remedies are restricted, the right is reduced to a dead letter. “
