What should be included in the Constitution of Sockistan?
Habib, so many good answers here with allusion to the US Constitution, and I couldn’t hope to exceed them or even reach them.
And then, I remembered a different country’s constitution. Not even its current version.
In the 60s, Greek leftist youth protested the assassination of Grigoris Lambrakis and the subsequent upheaval in the country, by chanting “114!”
Article 114, the final article of the 1952 Constitution of Greece. It’s article 120 in the 2008 revision of the current Constitution of Greece.
H τήρηση του Συντάγματος επαφίεται στον πατριωτισμό των Eλλήνων, που δικαιούνται και υποχρεούνται να αντιστέκονται με κάθε μέσο εναντίον οποιουδήποτε επιχειρεί να το καταλύσει με τη βία.
Upholding the Constitution is a responsibility entrusted to the patriotism of the Greek people, who are entitled and obligated to resist by any means necessary whoever attempts to do away with it by force.
Mutatis mutandis, Habib le toubib? You could do worse than this as a closer.
