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
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.
