Thank you for your benevolent words about my post. :)
Yes, it took me a few hours to read all, think about our needs and reword it. But it gave my some satisfaction. The positive credit goes also to @bigred. I took and reword some of their fantastic ideas and suggestions.
Regarding the contain, number of points or if some parts are repetitive or even a "constitutional" matter, please consider that this was not my text nor my choice, nor the way I would have done it... I only tried to keep faithful to the contain of the original document and tried to improve it without many radical changes.
Yes, there're a few matters that are more "constitutional" than literary or big principles, but I think that to introduce some principles about the nation political system (that will be developed in a future Constitution), political relationship with other nations, dual citizenship or human rights is also interesting to do it, as long as they will legally bind the "Constitutional Fathers" at the time that they will prepare the draft Constitution (for example, they will not be able -if they would be tempted- to introduce a text with a monarchy or a dictatorship, nor include an official religion).
The principles included about Asgardia being subject to "ius gentium" (international law) and International Declaration of Human Rights will protect the main rights of all Asgardians since the first minute, without any need to subscribe any international treaty nor to wait for any diplomatic recognition. We will have a whole legal corpus and a Rule of Law system since the beginning -together with the future Constitution-. Nice, isn't it?
It would be interesting that the people that wrote the original text could give us their opinion, thoughts and feedback. Also it would be nice to know if they accept some proposal of innovations or if we must respect each and all the "matters" suggested in those points.
There are many declarations of independence and Constitutions along History to seek and take some good ideas about principles, main matters and rewording.
I will follow your next posts with interest to get more ideas to improve this text. After all, this declaration will be a collective work of all Asgardians and it will be voted! Many people shall have to be comfortable with it!
