This submission is divided into two parts. Part 1 makes specific recommendations for necessary changes to the Constitution. Part 2 discusses what would be considered desirable. The overall objective is to stress the importance of constitutional excellence and the profound responsibility of the Constitutional Review Committee.
It argues that what makes the difference between successful – free, peaceful and prosperous countries – and unsuccessful – unfree, conflict-ridden, and backward countries – is, primarily, the quality of its constitution. When the question is asked: why do some countries succeed and others fail, typically, the suggestion might be made that successful countries have the “right” culture, race, history, resources, geographic size, population size, international relations, work ethic, or whatever.
