No written constitution

No written constitution

We have no need for a written constitution, and it will do nothing but limit our grandchildren's options. Constitutions are notoriously difficult to change (see American right to bear arms) even when they are demonstrably harmful to a modern society , and many of the things we take for granted (equality of gender, sexual preference, race, abortion choice etc. under the law) would have been excluded from/banned by a constitution written only 2 generations ago. All things change; morals, ethics, religions, yet constitutions have an inertia all of their own. Do not force our grandchildren to obey a set of outdated, irrelevant and in no doubt harmful rules when their time comes round.
