"The US Constitution" Review/Talkback (spoilers)
Inspired by Ace The Bathound's great idea of having a talkback thread for the Declaration of Independence, I wanted to start a thread with a talkback for one of the greatest documents in World History... The Constitution of The United States!
I think that the US Constitution is pure brilliance. Like engineers, the founders of the US designed a system that had checks and balances elegantly set up to help and watch each other at the same time. It was a revoultionary idea in its day, and in many parts of the world, it's still a revolutionary idea today.
Did you know that a museum opened on Friday exclusively devoted to the US Constitution? It even has its own website:
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
The body of the Constitution sets forth a means by which the various cultures of immigrants could be preserved to meld into a uniquely American culture...one that stubbornly refuses to give precedence to any religion, literature, music, art or social institution from any country of origin of the People of the United States. I read the Constitution of the United States with great pride; the Bill of Rights and the various Amendments to it since 1789 make it a world class document.
It is the Constitution of the United States which protects and encourages the flowering of individual and groups of people out of whom come the real greatness of America; its rich, enlivening and enjoining music, art, science, drama, cinema, literature, comedy, religion and playtime activities
What do you think?
