"communism is unconstitutional" -- what do I think of that?
Of COURSE it's "unconstitutional" because we have a constitution that sets up a republic. Therefore, Monarchy is unconstitutional as is
Theocracy, Anarchy, Feudalism, Oligarchy, Plutocracy, Magocracy, Dictatorship, Polity, Ochlocracy, Fascism, Polity, totalitarianism, Provincial
Governance, Parlimentary government, Heterarchy, Imperialism, Diarchy, Albocracy, Angelocracy (no, not making that one up), -- AND pure Democracy as
well as another hundred or so types of governance (yes, really) that you could care to name.
The only government system available under the Constitution is that of a Republic. Everything else is technically "unconstitutional." Does it
mean that it's illegal? Not really. Can we vote to change to another form of government if everyone wanted that? Absolutely.
This isn't a terribly profound statement. Under a Communist government, a Republic (or the other forms of government mentioned there) are
"unconstitutional." Under a Theocracy, Republics and other forms of government are "unconstitutional." Under Great Britain's laws, a Republic
I thought the point was rather self-evident.
