    Hmm!!! How can one love, appreciate or subscribe to something that in reality offers no protection to citizens at all. Something that can and will be usurped by any government. No government has to be oppressive, all governments are oppressive by nature as the only crurency of politics is power. Every provision of our constitution has a weasel clause allowing government to ignore it. Why is a weasel clause needed and why were they inserted? At the end of the day no constitution is protected by anything but citizens desire and want of the rights afforded by the constitution. Our education system is designed to remove all appreciation of the constitution by citizens who now think it is the job of the laws,and courts to protect us and the constitution. We forget who controls absolutely the courts and constitution under such circumstances that nobody will object or object in sufficient numbers? Nor is there any provision to prevent an oppressive government from instilling its will on the people despite it being the second most requested inclusion. Not even one word of discussion by the drafters can be found. In truth the US constitution remains the best but fails to ensure proper education of the people to appreciate the rights given to them.

    Our Constitution IS a wonderful though bourgeouis document. It is wonderful for building a legacy and it speaks to the political dream of a true South African nation. However, the economics of South Africa, continue to run a widening path between the dreams of the least educated, least economically-active South Africans, and those (middle class) who manipulate the economy. As heart-stopping as a service-delivery protest or a mass rally is, it still has not helped a single working class South African to own his/her own factory to bring wealth to their community. The only people who own micro, small and medium enterprises, slog very hard to build them from nothing and to maintain them. Our Constitution needs to inspire all of us to take the blinkers off our eyes and take the nonsense rhetoric out of our ears. All our social ills despite our Constitution, can only be stopped by communities that are empowered by THEMSELVES, not by the promises of politicians. Politicians are EXECUTVE EMPLOYEES of the STATE, who are PAID a salary to argue IN FAVOUR OF the state. They only ever remember their constituents, namely US the people of South Africa, when elections roll around every 5 years.

    I love the South African constitution because it is one of the most progressive in the world. It was drafted with much hope to celebrate our multicultural and multilingual heritage, a showcase of South Africa’s beauty, the spirit of its people and the dream of a better tomorrow. Yes, it is a beautiful document with very good intentions, yet millions of white South Africans are being pushed to the fringes of society and I quote Mr or is it Dr Blade Nzimande because of “positive discrimination” – what is positive about having policies and quotas that allow students to enroll at university with mediocre marks and refuse those with outstanding grades due to their skin colour? Where are we going wrong and why are we failing the next generation of leaders and people that should be carrying this country forward? Why did we make a mockery of our democracy by making Zuma president even after the rape allegations/corruption charges? Why do we celebrate people such as Julius Malema, why are influential criminals such as Shaick released from prison on questionable grounds? Why was Mogoeng Mogoeng appointed to the highest post in the judiciary with limited experience and a questionable track record? Why are the millions of South Africans still living in the shacklands with inadequate access to clean water, basic sanitation, electricity and decent housing? Why is the ANC not responding to their constituencies and merely making empty promises that are not grounded in practice and tangible solutions? Why are gays and lesbians and others that form part of their community still discriminated against, even Zuma stated how he would attack a person for being gay. Why why why I ask you, why write such a beautiful document, yet do so little with it?

Why are the millions of South Africans still living in the shacklands with inadequate access to clean water, basic sanitation, electricity and decent housing? Why is the ANC not responding to their constituencies and merely making empty promises that are not grounded in practice and tangible solutions? Why are gays and lesbians and others that form part of their community still discriminated against, even Zuma stated how he would attack a person for being gay. Why why why I ask you, why write such a beautiful document, yet do something with it.

    Biggest spoilers of our constitution are the judiciary. Everybody nows that they are indipendent. Nothing To Prove Now. Do the Right thing from now on.

Meadia will not persecute them for ruling in favour the majority in SA. Stop wasting our constitution in the name of judicial independence. Stop targeting other South African, they also have contitutional rights to fair trail and objectivity.

    Our judges are the greatest abusers of our constitution. Everybody holding a position of power declares his/ her interest. The executive and the country's president declaires but the judges are teaming up against declaring their interest. They need special previlages when declaring. That is unfair and unconstitutional. They are not above the law and the fact that they were not cought with sinister activity doesn't mean they are pure. They may be playing their cards very well. Normally the guy who won a case against the disburning of Scopion will not go on with the case unless he has been promised to drag it all the way to the constitutional court. This is not an inocent case to the constitutional court. our Judges need to be monitored including their movements. Some of then share beds with afriforum and da that is why political cases are easily won by this two organisations. One day the truth will come. That our trusted judges have been abusing our constitution.

    The Constitution belongs to us all Mark Twain once wrote of America: "We are called a nation of inventors. And we are. We could still wear that title and claim its loftiest honours, if we had stopped with the first thing we ever invented which was human liberty." In exploring this critical view of late 19th Century America, one cannot help be re-minded of our own struggle to 'invent' a new, democratic and free society. The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa has been hailed globally as one of the finest pieces of progressive legislation ever produced. While studying Law at Rhodes, my colleagues and I were taught to view the Con-stitution with the utmost respect; to see the Constitution for what it really is: the crowning achievement of more than a century of struggle against tyrannical oppression and cruel discrimination. Yet, inasmuch as it is an achievement, our constitutional democracy is fragile and could be damaged by individuals or groups seeking to further their own interests, instead of addressing the far greater needs of the majority of our fellow citizens living in poverty. In a crisis, particularly one involving human rights violations, citizens and their legal advisors are quick to grab hold of every section of the Bill of Rights that may assist in correcting the injustice(s) they have suffered. Politicians eager to appear trustworthy and committed to those who elect them, will quote struggle heroes and heroines, whilst all the while, advocating policies or amendments which trample on the integrity of our constitutional democracy. We often seek the protection the constitution provides. Yet, we do little to ensure that its integrity is safeguarded and maintained. We, as citizens, have a sacred duty to do our utmost to protect the integrity of the constitution so that it may protect us in turn The people of the Rainbow Nation must be made aware that the Constitution is not the exclusive property of legislators, politicians, the judiciary or the organs of state which keep our country functioning. Rather, it belongs to all South Africans and the price we put on its integrity, is an indication of how much we value our freedom. Suggested limitations of the powers of the Constitutional Court to review government decisions or policies are the first of many steps down a path that ultimately leads to a new kind of oppression, one no less morally repugnant that the oppressions of our troubled past. History has proven that an elected legislative body may trample a citizen's rights just as easily as the worst dictators and tyrants. We must heed the warning of Twain and the warnings of others and do not what is easy, but what we know is right. EC Today correspondent Christopher Edley

    Our constitution is a very fair and well organised, but what I don't realy love about it is the corruptness that is taking place, some of the citizens concerns are not taken ino consideration many things are brushed aside, the constitution must start to deliver what people ask they must learn to take in and every issue into action.People want an omnipotent constitution which will protect the rights of the people and protect the state people must have full information about what is happening everyday in the parliament, nothing must be hidden to the state we must make contact with it.

    I love our Constitution beacuse:It protects all who reside in the country despite their race or gender. It promotes equality and protects all citizens despite of their class or income. It allows the poor and rich to both enjoy the beauty and bounties of this land, while allowing for redress of historical injustice. It recognises the views of all its citizens allowing them to practice freely any religion they choose without fear. It holds to account the leaders of this country and urges every citizen to be part of building the nation.

Where every single voice can be heard, holding the government elected by the people accountable for the direction the country needs to go according the people themselves. Our constitution is one where respect and tolerance is at the centre of our collective values, to enable all South-Africans to learn from the past, but also to have the courage to build on an inclusive and prosperous society, as ONE nation. The world can learn from our constitution, in striving towards a world future characterised by responsibility, selflessness and bravery.

    I don't love our so-called constitution at all. It is a lot of words on fancy paper but in practice it is utterly useless. I am an environmentalist, specifically a water pollution ecologist. Our, OUR, environment is there for everybody to share and enjoy. But do we have our environmental rights protected? Absolutely not. There is so much corruption and bribery taking place. There are so many complete idiots in government that don't know what to do or just don't care to do anything as long as they get their bloated pay-checks. There are so many politicians and others that want to get rid of the environmental legislation. Why? Because saving frogs or wetlands doesn't add to the creation of wealth of the corrupt masses that are supposed to be leading and guiding this so-called democratic country.

    "The cornerstone of Mandela's legacy, the Constitution, has always been a soothing balm even to those most pessimistic about South Africa's prospects. No matter the challenges that convulse society, there was always the sense that the work of the judiciary and the Constitutional Court would protect the democratic edifice."

    South Africa is ruled by 400 "Citizens". Our Constitution is great on paper, if you are neo-liberal. But in reality our Constitution is reactive, hundreds of billions are wasted but they have done very little. The HAWKS are merely an arm of the ANC, the Constitutional Court could of intervened sooner. It is laughable that the slogan is "We The People..." A centralization of the intelligence sector, further centralization of power by the executive and gross abuses on the part of the State go unchecked. When the people rise up the Constitution will be ripped up.

    So many references to the constitution in today's papers. We're a bit bemused as to why some of the media won't hype this campaign given what we're trying to achieve - a demonstrable, mutually visible symbol of public support for the constitution. Hype is the only way we'll achieve the numbers we want. We have a very small budget and few resources. Most of the people who've worked on this campaign have done so for free. If there's anything South Africa needs right now, it's something like this. But we cannot do this on our own.

    Chapter 2, Section 9: "The state may not unfairly discriminate directly or indirectly against anyone on one or more grounds, including race, gender, sex, pregnancy, marital status, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, language and birth." Since I've lived in Europe (in Holland, the UK and now Germany) I have been discriminated against, directly and indirectly, on the grounds of: marital status, social origin, age, sexual orientation and language! The European Eunion ironically adopted the South African Equality Clause in Article 21, word for word! But, whereas most South Africans know what the Equality Clause says, most Europeans I know don't even know that they have such a clause. The South African motto "Unity in Diversity" is another concept they have copied into the Charter of Fundamental Human Rights of the EU, adopted in Nice in 2000 (Article 22). My experience of discrimination in Europe actually showed me why it was important to write down the grounds on which discrimination may not be made. This experience taught me what it feels like to be discriminated against directly and indirectly. Highly ironic that a white male like myself had to experience discrimination in Europe to become aware how how dehumanising it is and how powerless it makes you feel. So I've become a Constitutionalist and have a framed copy of the South African Constitution on my wall to remind me of how far we are ahead of the Europeans! I can't wait for the day I go back to South Africa. I love my consitution!

    Some may ask: Why should I love the Constitution? Does it bring food to the table? Will it build me a house? Will it buy me clothes? But without the Constitution you may do not the right to to have access to adequate housing, food, water, etc. So the more reason you should love the Constitution...

    To have one of the most liberal and progressive constitutions in the world is a true testament to those who have sacrificed so much to provide the people of this country with the ideal of equal rights to freedom, democracy, dignity and opportunity. However, while few may enjoy the benefits of the constitution, the lack of mechanisms to enable an average person to realise the majority of those rights, the rancid corruption within our apathetic government and the economic injustices that plague the majority of our people, render this beautifully constructed constitution utterly useless and a mere facade to our nation's true state of affairs.

  • Condorlexis

    I have my doubts about the claims that RSA's Constitution is "the most advanced in the world" because section 9(2) recognises a concept called “restitutionary equality”: This "restitutionary equality" is associated with the political concept of “transformation” and therefore the Constitution implicitly contains commitment to transformation as process, towards the goal of an equal society, which means unequal treatment (of previously advantaged sections of the community) may/will have to be tolerated. This appears to entrench "unequal treatment" of the white male/female (ironically?) used in the newspaper advert despite the fact that they are too young to have been born pre-1994. Unfortunately this Constitutionally envisaged "transformation" process has ensconsed many corrupt, self-serving and fraudlent "transformers" in positions where they can waste resources and plunder the coffers thus destroying the best intentions of the Constitution.

    The constitution is sovereign over all arms of the state (parliament and executive, judiciary, and the administration). As long as this remains, there is a genuine check to the abuse of power. The constitution's direct benefits to us, the people, do need, however, to be vigilantly monitored - it takes resources, will, commitment, on the part of the executive and administration to ensure that the pledges within the Constitution are carried out over time.

    Being held in high esteem internationally, the SA Constitution takes internationally accepted values and enshrines them as law, providing freedom on so many areas that would have been supressed had we still been living in the apartheid era. Thanks to the Bill of Rights all people are rgarded as people and afforded rights recognising them as such. Some may say that the Constitution is nothing but a duplicate of the flowery but unrealistic language of the Decleration of Independence, but for a young law student, appreciation for this document strectches beyond ignorance so much so that I can dare to say I really love the South African Constitution. As a proud supporter of Constitutional supremacy over parliament soveriegnty as well as a fanatic of the liberalistic movement fostering the recognition of human rights, I dare to say that I love the South African Constitution.

    We, the members of the South African Pagan Rights Alliance (SAPRA), love the South African Constitution because it guarantees freedom of religion to all citizens equally. As Pagans (Witches, Wiccans, Asatruans, Druids and others) we appreciate the rights and liberties granted to us as a religious minority. http://www.paganrightsalliance.org/index.html

    I would #love the constitution if the ruling party kept to the rules, eg. jobs for all, up hold the human rights clause (for all, not ONLY SOME), free education and health.

    I love our constitution as it is a document that ensures that we establish a society based on democratic values, social justice and fundamental human rights. It is the foundation of an open society where each person's potential is freed and allows our country to take it's rightful place in the family of nations.

    I love the constitution because of Chapter 2 which gives us all rights. Yes even foreigners have 25 rights! I love the constiution because it seperates the powers of judiciary, the executive and parlaament in a system of co-opeartive governance

    I love our Constitution because it recognises and upholds basic human rights for all South Africans as enshrined in the Bill of Rights. Our Constitution supports equality and the right to sexual orientation - in Africa, that is quite something!
