First of all, thank you for your critique. Second, are you really living in Bulgaria? I'm thinking you must have lived in Communism and rejected it entirely, the latter of which is great.

Third, sorry for the delay.

Which is good.

What does legislature have to do with infrastructure?
I suggest the funding comes from one-time initiatives, like bonds instead of permanent tax and tolls should pay for maintenance.

Bonds need to be repaid with interest. This government is no bank.

Quote:
Not needed.

What, exactly, isn't needed? The Ministry of Immigration? I guess it could be renamed to the "Ministry of Admissions" or something like that.

Quote:
Not needed.This is the prerogative of religious institutions.

I agree, actually.

Quote:
Pay an independent institute or a university and they'll gladly do it for you.

I never thought of that. Could be outsourced, but that could be done at a legislative level instead of in the actual Constitution.

Quote:
I think enrollment into local militia groups and yearly training should be mandatory. Make buying of weapons and ammo tax deductible expenses.

But militia isn't controlled by government. That's weird IMO. Conscription is an option of the legislature, once more.

Quote:
This is just pompous bul****, imo.

Yeah, I'll remove that.

Quote:
Also, laws should be trimmed as much as possible after the engineering principle – it's perfect when you can't take anything away, not when you can't add anything to it. For example, there should be no safety laws.

IMO, because of how we've seen the American Constitution, along with many others, become "living, flexible documents", which can be modified to the whim of politicians by simple opinion, we need strong protections against fluidity built into the constitution of any country.

Quote:
That's kind of self explanatory, but I don't like prisons in principle. Short-term work camps, corporal punishment and ultimately execution is a better alternative. I would also prefer if this was a decentralized system with major population centers having their own police and corrections facilities. Petty crime shouldn't be the concern of the central government.

Who said that jail/prison can't mean locally run labor camps? That's what I believe now but locally run detention centers were my original intent with the Nukia Constitution.

Quote:
Not needed. Remove that ability altogether by not creating a branch of the government tasked with snooping on people.

It's mainly tasked with policing across local jurisdictions, cracking corrupt politicians, etc. It can only "snoop" if given explicit consent, which is actually an exception that I forgot. This also applies to local jurisdictions, though.

Quote:
I'd prefer to omit that too. Unless you wanna define "fair" too.
Quote:
Right to property and the present and future well-being of the citizens should be basically all of the law.
Quote:
Why stop there, though? All powers which can effectively be relegated to smaller unit of authority, should be. That way you minimize corruption and power creep.
Quote:
I disagree with that. This will mean certain civil war when for one reason or another a territory decides to secede. If thing are that bad, it's already too late imo.

Remember my perspective as being from the States. America's bloodiest war wasn't an invasion of the homeland or anything of the sort…It was when the central government went in on slave states which had ceded from the union while the central government debated if it was legal. This is resolved by preventing them from ceding, because then you have a rebellious action put down quickly. Of course, this could easily go down like the Soviet Union fell.

I think that is too restrictive. Whatever works best for the particular situation should be the rule of thumb.

Quote:
Who will pay for that extravagant idea?

Putin :P But in all seriousness I don't think that would actually be done. I just have no better idea. Then again, splitting up the central capitals into Kiev (Emperor), Belgrade (President), and Warsaw (Legislature)

Quote:
There will be blood, then :)

Yeah, I should have added Slovak, Czech, Rusyn, and all of those other goodies, haha. And split Yugoslavian into its respective dialanguages. (portmanteau of dialect and language that I just made up)

Quote:
What are you planning to do with the data?

Publish it online.

Quote:
This is a gray area that the law best stay out of. Again, this is a prerogative of the church.

How so? The government can't just not enforce charges of murder.

Quote:
Laws protecting the well-being of the citizen should cover that. This is what I mean by "avoid getting into specifics" – "thou shalt not hit thy neighbor over the head with a hockey stick on a sunday" is unnecessary if you have "thou shalt not harm thy neighbor".

I see your point. The legislatures of the states should have it covered, anyway.

Quote:
Sounds like "socialist policies are banned except when they aren't" …
At the local level you shouldn't care what they do with their money. If citizens know where their taxes are going and have control of it they can build communist communes if they so desire. Just as long as they're not doing it with other people's money. This should have the added bonus of creating a sort of a marketplace for ideas where the best ideas win.

Okay yeah I'll remove the exception.

Quote:
Central government for sure.

ditto. See above. If they want to do it at the local level, let them pool their resources, donate to charity or whatever.

No goverment mandated education and no ministry of education, certainly.

Agree. With greater power should come greater responsibility. Carrot and stick.

Indeed.

You're getting into minutae again. This is theft, property is protected. Therefore it's already illegal.
Quote:
Terrible idea. There should be a procedure for that.

Can you go into detail on that?

Quote:
Not too bad, all in all.
