Clarification is never a bad thing. constitutional additions
I would like to see the following added to Dan new and improved proposed constitution.
This constitution is predominantly written in proper English with various additional (EOS Blockchain) terms, each defined in the constitutional gloss. The definition of terms in the gloss shall supersede all other potential definitions for the purpose of interpretation. Legalese, (the language of lawyers and judges) shall not be used to interpret any part of this constitution. Translations of this constitution may prove helpful as supplementary tools for non-native English speakers, however, this English version is the only version to which members ultimately consent to honor and uphold.
This is not a Legal contract
This constitution is a lawful mutual agreement between sovereigns and shall not be interpreted so as to apply the bondage of legal systems.
This constitution shall be considered binding upon all members, independent of individual awareness, knowledge or comprehension of this constitution. When a non-member voluntarily interacts, in any way, with the EOS Blockchain for the first time, they are consenting to this constitution and thus considered members. Each subsequent interaction on EOS is a reaffirmation of consent. As this constitution may evolve via the amending process detailed within, members are strongly encouraged to maintain a thoroughgoing comprehension of this document, however, constitutional consent is not contingent on a members comprehension thus ignorance of this constitution does not nullify its effects
Termination of constitutional consent
A member may decide to revoke constitutional consent at any time by discontinuing all interactions on EOS.
(can we find a better way to fulfill this function?)
