I am so over the Constitution

My latest at Medium. Excerpt:
Imagine a world of nation-states, like ours. One country is almost always at war and has military bases all over the world. Its large neighbors never invaded it, but it has invaded them, and has occupied and overthrown the governments of smaller nearby countries. The one war it fought that appeared “just” involved defending ill-gotten colonies from an aspiring power, but its mainland and way of life were never threatened. For much of its history it sanctioned, blockaded, bombed, and invaded countless countries, and engineered coup d’etats in many others. And it violated treaties with and stole land from several “stateless” nations. 
What would you think of such a country? Of its laws? Of its constitution?
A 3-minute read.
