    Britain doesn't have a constitution, and its a functional democracy. Russia has a constitution and its an autocratic dictatorship. I agree with Strenger about all the problems we are having, particularly the attempts to undermine the judiciary, and the lack of separation between religion and state. Perhaps for our country, a constitution may solve many of these dilemmas. But, frankly, I don't see any politicians with the backbone and vision to lead the country into calling a constitutional convention. It may take the situation getting worse before the citizenry finally gets it.
