the CONSTITUTION, for a sane society

Preamble

We believe that it is the inalienable right of the all people to have freedom and to enjoy the fruits of their toil and have the necessities of life, so that they may have full opportunities of growth. We believe also that if any government deprives a people of these rights and oppresses them the people have a further right to alter it or abolish it.
