One goal of our protest is that it does not address just short term objectives. We want changes that apply to ALL people for ALL generations in the future, not just for the benefit of a few people in power now. So, this means we need to add at least one major DEMAND to the list:

Congress shall establish a Department of SUSTAINABILITY, with the responsibility for developing a WORLD MODEL that addresses ALL the known and reasonably anticipated factors which significantly affect the welfare of human society. All new laws presented to congress for action must demonstrate that they are not harmful to future life on this planet, EITHER in aggregate or to individuals. Where individuals are disadvantaged for the "common good", those individuals shall be SUBSTANTIALLY benefited in proportion to the common good achieved.

Please jump in here, comment on sustainability and bring up any other ideas you have related to extending the protections of a new Constitution to future generations.
