Thanks! Even though I can't agree that it's "better" than ours, it's certainly an education to read through it. I like the links comparing it to other constitutions around the world, so you can see others' perspectives. It says pretty much everything ours says, if at times more explicitly. I must say, though, that I found it excessively longwinded and prone to micromanagement - or should that be "comprehensive" and "thorough in governmental scope"? ;) 142 Articles, plus 29 accessory Articles is way too much detail (even considering that A24-49 pertain to the King). A constitution should exist in order to set the basic bounds and duties of Government - not to establish the moral and ethical life of the citizenry. Nor should it really micromanage the government from the King on down the janitors. While I do like some of the first articles and how they lay out certain concepts; I really find the rambling approach a little tedious. I also don't like the lack of a Preamble - that really sets the tone of the whole document. Padraic. -- Gwerez dah, chee gwaz vaz, ha leal.
