Happy Constitution Day

While many remember than august 17 is the independence day ( and start the repetitive debate of whether Indonesia is free), only a few even remember that constitution is ratified today 63 years ago.

If one thing Indoensia need right now, is to focus on rule of law and designing a better law. There are certainly not lack of good Indonesian scholar or academic reference. The growing school of law and economics definitely worth more than a second look by indonesian legal and economic scholar.

Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding father of America, was asked what kind of government the Constitution instituted, responded "A republic if you can keep it."

I certainly hope we the Indonesian prove ourself worthy to keep our republican it.
