[D+223] Hypocritical to Consort with reason-lawless Constitution

Is being renovated the loose Austrian Federal Constitution after 90 years, finally General?
The process of European integration for the establishment of reason, leads right in Austria?

“Goddess of wisdom”, a model of the Austrian parliamentary democracy, blind as “Justitia”

The long-overdue constitutional reform – is actually a solution to the post-war provisional restoration from the ruins of the monarchy after the First world war – is blocked for years by real political Strait-jackets against the necessary, in-depth administrative reform. The year-long struggle of the Austria-Convention solutions is in the Wetlands of the Austrian lowlands .

Time is of the essence
Hopefully the suffering “of The crisis is used” as an opportunity, costly Ballast to throw off. When else if not now?

Forced marriages is required
(E) the state receives for the Transfer of the “Befindlichkeits and Beliebigkeits - legal state” in a fundamental right-only the abandonment of national sovereignty that Austria is suppressed by the EU (and UN) from the outside, finally, civil and social fundamental rights and freedoms “up”?1
This is, at least, if we take the statements of the Federal President in his Speech at the 50. Austrian Juristentag (06.05.2009).

There is hope yet?
We see it is actually a positive one: The President expresses an action from needs since the year 1920, to complement the Austrian Federal Constitution, the “triviality” of the missing fundamental rights, especially fundamental social rights. The head of state is to thank for this positioning, in fact, if he wanted to bring with reproduction of his office in a state of political intention. After all, insight is already half the way to recovery.

The fatal consequences of the provisional restoration
This blemish, the still-provisional Federal Constitution, probably explains in purely formal terms, some of the incomprehensible decisions of our highest courts and their Decision refusals. Understanding of the citizens can not afford, however, it offers the notorious support objectors in the social Affairs of the länder – the provision in article 7 (B-VG) and a myriad of international commitments of the last 60 years mocking – enough loopholes to unhindered exercise of official discrimination, arbitrary treatment by state authorities and the systemic, institutionalised violence against vulnerable people.

Responsibility of all organs of the state
According to my understanding of the "the rule of law principle“ a (very valid!) The basic pillars of our Constitution, it is understandable that over the decades, since the UN Charter of human rights (1948), the European social Charter (1969), UN children's rights Convention (1989), European Charter of fundamental rights (2000), to the UN disability rights Convention (2008), all note signed sacred, beige and ratified was joined, however, this should only serve the good glow?

Ignorant Law-Hypocrisy
"In the name of the Republic of Austria" has already been promised in many state acts, the "conscientious fulfilment of the provisions contained therein", and on enforcement of rights, we decided not to but (deliberately?) on long stretches. Even the constitutional provision which says that all public authorities at a disadvantage due to disability (and other grounds of Discrimination) in article 7 B-VG (1997) explicitly below, will be ignored for 12 years in legislation and enforcement.

Help from outside?
To be optimistic, I consider, therefore, in his speech expressed hope of Mr Federal President, Austria by pressure of the may be still in force Treaty of Lisbon (incl. European Charter of fundamental rights) of the decades-long-entrenched hypocrisy apparent Pact ability in international treaties, especially in the social area, and allow ourselves to be distracted.

It is our common responsibility
How long is the way to Austria will take to the rule of law, when does the Republic (the ruling people), finally, responsibility, and proves compliance with a contract for commitments? [URL removed-ed.]

“Those who ignore the clear demands of the UN Convention on the rights of disabled people still violates universal human rights and undermines the rule of law. This is also true for lower Austria!”


“We take our responsibility as a caring society, which is not fair to leave if the “life-task”, a disabled child (or dependent relatives) is entitled to participate in life, very often for life-”task” is.”


“The state governments are still acting as if they are likely to put on about the Constitution & the fundamental rights and legal claims continue to be due to arbitrary acts of Mercy.”


“It's enough for a very long time! Enough of the lip service, of your deeds you will be measured! Your arrogance & ignorance towards human dignity and human rights stank so mightily to heaven, ...”
