The Pirates Constitution
I must emphasize that the idea/reason behind this is not to branch off from the current community to form any new group/community on the basis of new Constitution. Instead, the idea is to demonstrate some suggestions/improvements in the current Constitution without changing the core values so that if the collective finds it acceptable the new Constitution can be merged with the current Constitution or vice versa (for example I've written it in such a way that 'The Pirates Constitution' can be easily changed into the 'Indian Pirates Constitution' by replacing every occurrence of 'Pirates' with 'Indian Pirates' throughout the document).
I've tried my best to improve rationality and objectivity of the document and to reduce ambiguities as much as possible. Having said that, the two major changes in the new Constitution are:
Brought a new structure by adding:
->Preface to give an introduction to the Constitution and Pirates.
->Preamble to explain the aim, vision and purpose of Pirates.
->Chapters to organize Articles.
Introduced new Articles to show the stand of Pirates on Environmental Issues (Chapter 1, Articles 6 & 7).
The new Constitution has only two Chapters, one about the Basic Principles and the other about Membership. A third Chapter about Rights of the Members needs to be added but only after necessary discussions.
