One should not have any illusions: a good and democratically adopted constitution does not necessarily guarantee a good and fair government of a state. Constitutions do not dictate to citizens what they are supposed to do but how they must act in order to be politically comprehensible to one another. In that sense, constitutions are similar to grammar: it does not prescribe what but how we must write and talk in order to be understood by others. Since the Devil does not abide by constitutions, nor can he be forced to respect them, there has been a theoretical attempt to reduce constitutions not to the positive laws spurned by the Devil but to the open rules relying on the citizens’ customs and their political culture so that they – and not the Devil – may, just in case, interpret constitutions themselves and also alter them when they do no longer guarantee a fair political communication among citizens.
