Constitution of Sustainability

The following text is a transcription of the Constitution of the United States of America with the required additions and changes for checking and balancing against the process of unsustainability, that, unless addressed explicitly in the formal frameworks of government, will plague all societies and all governments. Thus, this is a Constitutional blueprint for sustainability, regardless of geography or epoch, as it represents general requirements of governments in administrating and creating the conditions of sustainability, and maintaining the process of sustainability. Items in black text are the same as the United States Constitution. Items in green text are additions. Items in faded light blue have since been amended or superseded in the Constitution of the United States, and they appear in faded blue to avoid duplication, since in this Constitution of Sustainability update they have already been folded into appearing as black text. For example, many later additional Amendments (in faded blue) have become black-text main Articles in this update. In short, all that is in black text is already part of the United States Constitution. What is in green text represents additions. The Signature Area of this transcription can be signed, by you, on the webpage. From that page, it is suggested that you could, if you wish, send this copy to any of your present government\'s representatives or officials. Send it to academics to get them thinking about the formal political requirements of sustainability. After any email is sent, then you can see the total number of people who have signed this Constitution for Sustainability, organized by their origin in existing unsustainable governmental frameworks--which of course are obsolescent in the Constitution for Sustainability, because they abet unsustainability. First, within the Constitution of Sustainability is a procedure for how existing unsustainable formal frameworks can be adapted to sustainability, for unsustainable States around the world. Second, these sections describe how entry in the Constitution of Sustainability is possible for States wishing to join the Union or claim their rights under the Union, as politically and consumptively externalized trade colonies. These trade colonies experience \"extraction without representation.\" At present, they are socio-financially manipulated from afar by other States, and denied political feedback into these unsustainable relationships. It is the demotion of that political separation and difference--a political separation that facilitates the unsustainability of trade relationships--that this addresses. The aim of this petition is both recognition of the Constitution of Sustainability and its ideas, as well as promoting State level activism toward setting in motion existing U.S. Constitutional machinery for establishing a Constitutional Convention that would institutionalize sustainability instead of unsustainability in the present frameworks of the United States government.
