Constitution: (n) a body of fundamental principles or established precedents
Shall we call it the quest?
It is the odyssey that science, spirituality, government, entertainment, business, morality and ethics should be on in the pursuit of finding out what is best for the human race.
Many years ago, our forefathers decided to establish a document which would explain their hopes and dreams for a new country. It was a step. It was the beginning of this quest–a constitution which constitutes that we intend to get along together, and will find a way to do it while granting each other the pursuit of happiness.
After all, your happiness may be my definition of immorality–and my morality may seem to be an unlawful imprisonment to your desires.
So the constitution is not a collection of thoughts, phrases and paragraphs, but rather, an attempt to understand that there will be some evolution, discovery and realizations that come along the way which will cause us to reflect on what we have already written–and add to it with an eye toward the common good.
Matter of fact, there may be some things we need to subtract because they limited a particular group of people at the time the document was written.
The beauty of a constitution is that it is a great starting place to commence something truly significant.
But the quest must go on.
And those who try to freeze time, limit possibilities or preclude others are not following the constitution, but rather, using it as a means of inhibiting the free expression of all citizens.
