The protection of children and society.

Constitutional amendment and enforcement.
Children have been protected in our constitution. Protecting our young is reflected in how our laws are enforced and not only in our legislation. The topic is symptomatic of our society today and is reflected in other areas too and how we all consider one another.
Children have been protected in our constitution, with a caveat that the rights of the child are to have parents and the right of the parents are to protect their children. The state have since 1937 maintained the right to take the responsibility as parents where the parents have failed. This protection in the past has been delegated to religious institutions with infamous consequences. Slavery and abuse have been extensively reported as being the result of this delegation of the states responsibility. The wording of the constitution is proposed to be changed, and while it may indeed be improved wording, the protection failure in the past has been due to inappropriate or absent enforcement. Like much legislation, we should consider whether merely adding or changing laws will result in any improvement if enforcement is either of poor quality or absent.
