The constitution is terse and old and guarantees virtually few rights. The rights guaranteed by the constitution are parsimonious by international standards and frozen in amber. Most nations take their constitutions and revise them for the zeitgeist about every twenty years.

Even Anthony Scalia of the Supreme Court said, "Every Banana Republic has a bill of Rights. Big deal".
