Marbury v Madison [1802] SC- USA.


John Marshall- CJ
That the people have an original right to establish, for their own future goverment, such principles, as in their opinion shall most conduce to their own happiness is the basis on which the whole American fabric has been erected.

You can use the above quote , if your decide to write on, the Dream Constitution.

You have to make  some comparisions on a few constitutions. This is just an academic question- because in the end the Constitution is what it really is- a DREAM in peoples minds. England, N.Z. and Israel (exception- no constituion), USA, Australia and any other Constitution in the world is bound to have problems with different ethnic and racial  groups. This problem is nothing new-it is as old as the world itself. One way is to tackle it from a sociological level- by having an absolute or constituional monarchy. Another is to have  a  comprehensive constitution with a strong   independant Judiciary. One thing is for sure though- the country may need the army, the banks   and the civil service to exist- but neither can suceed for long without lawyers being somewhere around the corner.Constitutional Lawyers frame the Constitution, Litigation lawyers argue in Court, and Judges decide where the justice of the case lies.There is no escaping your goodselves.
