Some more food for thought.
I wish I was better studied on this than I am but I will do my best. I have lots of ideas and input on our future government.
Are we a democratic communist republic, Democratic Socialism, capitalist Democratic republic? I could discuss the prose and Cons of any of it. Maybe so.where else.
I know the Constitution Table of Contents is a good start and mentioned to outline the Constitution.
Many people, mostly the Submitted States, look to the countries constitution for guidance and that's a good place to start but another possibly overlooked document is States constitutions. States have to assume governance independent of any other oversight. In the united States the Federal constitution establishes the limitations of the Federal government. And defines structure and rights and things but it is all in the realm of governing States with "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people."
The limitations of power is emphasis as to bring all the colonies onboard. Asgardia doesn't have that problem.
I have added and rearranged some chapters from my last post but the overall point is the same.
Chapter I Declaration of Unity
Which should include also but not only source of power, boundaries, and type of government.
Chapter II Rights and Freedoms
Listing all freedoms in order of importance as many as necessary but no more than the government can guarantee. A process by which can rights can be amended should be provided in a later Chapter.
Chapter III Departments of Government
A detailed description of the basic governmental structure branches of government: legislative, executive, and Judicial. Also describe the duties and responsibilities of elected officials.
I should note that separation of powers is vital. This should be considered with extreme care. No branch should ever have total power to accuse, try, and convict any other. The understanding that there is total and ever vigilant oversight is one measure to prevent corruption in government.
Chapter IV Judicial System
Here should be a list of duties and limitations of the Judical system and department. The means by which Justice is tried and executed.
Chapter VI Executive
List of duties and limitations of the branch of government mentioned to execute and implement the laws of Asgardia.
Chapter VI Legislative
The structure of how laws will be made in Asgardia. Removing the power of money (the ability to create and allocate currency) should be separated from those who make the laws that require funding. Also no branch should have the ability to grant ones own salary, raise, or even be charged with managing its own salary.
Chapter VII Elections
Define the process by which we elect our government officials.
This is just as important as separation of powers. The process of elections can be gamed. We need to devise as best we can a system in which it will be difficult or impossible to ascend to an office of influence or power by gaming the electorial system.
Chapter VIII Transitional and Final Provisions
He we should state a clear but difficult means to change or amend the constitution.
That is all for now. Bigred and Yovy think, you two have some well considered and thoughtful ideas.
