The Revolutionary Communist Party has issued a new draft constitution for the Socialist Republic of North America. Only the preamble is available on the website; those interested in learning more will have to buy the book. The preamble itself, full of anachronistic language, is over 2700 words long, which would, according to a recent paper of mine on constitutional specificity, make it one of the longest preambles in the world if it were ever adopted. It would not be the longest preamble in history, however: that distinction belongs to the Yugoslav Constitution of 1974, which had a preamble of 6000 words, longer than 20% of all entire constitutions.
What is it with communists and preambles?
