World Magazine uses an old story to illustrate the tests that a new constitution will face in Iraq. Think about the differences between those who fled Europe seeking (religious) freedom only to be followed for a time by those they were trying to escape.

Now think about the culture to which a constitution is being added in Iraq. Are the people of Iraq ready for self-government? Can they peacefully work through the issues that we’ve got ”miles of lawyers” working on every day?
