Legislative Limits::


Non-Enumerated Rights
---------------------
Neither laws forbidding conduct not explicitly or implicitly forbidden
by this document, nor laws regulating conduct not explicitly or
implicitly regulated by this document, nor laws permitting conduct
explicitly forbidden by this document, nor laws deregulating conduct
explicitly regulated by this document, can be enacted by any means,
including declaration by an agent of the state, representative
legislation, and direct democratic mandate, nor through any other
means, provided that this document can be altered in accordance with
.

Enumeration of Miscellaneous Limits on Systemic Domain
------------------------------------------------------
The state cannot pay for or participate in the building and management
of residences or hospitals except as necessary within the military.

Under no circumstances can the state interfere with the setting of
wages or prices, or with enterprise, investment, interest rates,
market coverage, or corporate charters, except as set forth
specifically in this document.

The state cannot in any way disburse funds, goods, and services,
except as laid out in this document.

The state can not duplicate manufacturing or services available in the
private sector, except where the stable availability of the private
goods or services is in imminent doubt and the product is critical to
physical national defense.

Besides specialized training for state employees, and as otherwise
specified in this document, the state cannot engage in the mechanics
of education, promotion, or propaganda, except insofar as publication
(in print, or electronically through video, text, or mixed-content
media) constitutes a component of education.  Specifically, the state
cannot cause information to be published (or otherwise provided),
through privately owned channels (not themselves common carriers), by
means of payment or coercion (for example, through the threat or
actuality of withholding a license of some sort), except that the
military can cause information to be published (or otherwise provided)
through privately owned channels by means of payment.  The state is
expected to relay live video of all full-assembly legislative
proceedings through common carriers (paid commercial terrestrial or
satellite common carrier video distributors) in a form accessible
using commonly available hardware costing less than a week's average
wages.  The full-assembly proceedings of all units of state within the
corresponding geographic bounds of which a residence is located must
be accessible to that residence.  Common carrier video distributors
are required to carry legislative programming when so requested by the
state, and for this carrying they must charge and receive a fair
market rate.

Latitude of State Licensing Procedure
-------------------------------------
The state can require and offer licensing only for activities
necessarily involving artificial implements or substances, wherein
improper conduct directly threatens the physical safety of others, or
for activities which consume inherently and unalterably public and
contentious resources.  The state cannot predicate exercise of a right
or privilege on any basis other than licensing.

No privileges of any sort can be demanded by the state of a licensee
as a condition of granting or maintaining a license for operation.
More generally, a license must be promptly granted once the requesting
party has demonstrated compliance with relevant law and, if
applicable, relevant competence.

Tests regulated or administered by the state, as a precondition of
licensing or otherwise, cannot be altered on the basis of the
identity, genotype, or beliefs of the test subject.  They cannot be
altered on the basis of phenotype, except to accomodate physical
handicaps or peculiarities which would render the test meaningless or
intrinsically flawed without alteration.

The state is required to make the licensing process as swift,
responsive, straightforward, and convenient, as is feasible.

All licenses are granted in perpetuity, and can be revoked only by
court order uniquely identifying the licensee, after a proper and
formal review and demonstration of cause, at which the licensee can
appear in his own defense.  The stated cause for revocation must
include the breaking of statutes of narrow relevance, or a finding that
the licensee is mentally incompetent, or a finding that the licensee
is physically incompetent in a manner which directly and inescapably
precludes safe exercise of the license.

License revocation can be appealed by the same procedure by which
other judgements are appealed.

Licenses abused in the course of committing a crime can be suspended
immediately upon arrest, by the arresting officer, for a period of up
to one week.  Upon court order, the suspension can be extended until
trial completes.  Upon trial completion, the license is either
restored or revoked.  Any forfeiture of property prompted by a license
suspension is temporary, and becomes permanent only upon license
revocation.

The procedure for license validation is enumerated in
.

Other than as specified in , the
state must not make license information available to anyone other than
the licensee, or to state employees whose job (consisting of
manipulation or maintenance of license database contents) requires
such access, or upon court order.

Emergencies
-----------
Emergencies, crises, and other circumstances of actual, perceived, or
declared heightened peril for the nation, do not extend state
authority beyond that described in this document, nor cause the
suspension, abridgement, or alteration in operation, of any part of
this document except as specifically set forth in this document.  In
particular, the rights of the individual to his sovereignty, privacy,
and property, as enumerated in this document, cannot be lawfully
abridged, to any degree whatsoever, even in an emergency.

In an emergency, certain bureaucratic procedures of state can be
altered to heighten responsiveness, as detailed or implied in this
document.

Constraints on Latitude of Treaties
-----------------------------------
In all instances in which a state treaty or other formalization of
international relation conflicts with law of this nation (including
its constitutions), law of this nation takes absolute precedence.

No state treaty, state action, or other formalization of international
relation can bind, coerce, or encourage the people of another nation
or nations to pursue, enforce, or be subject to, a policy, practice,
or arrangement, that would be unlawful if pursued or enforced in this
nation.  Furthermore, no state treaty or other formalization of
international relation can bind or encourage the people of this nation
to pursue or enforce a policy, practice, or arrangement, that would be
unlawful if pursued or enforced in the corresponding foreign nation or
nations.
