Lonely, sorry but I don't agree on your statement that Europe has the same problem, may be except England.
In Europe they "adapt their "base laws" on an daily basis, but not here. Thus the laws are up to date there. Here they just mess with "case laws" (after the fact laws) which are manipulated all the way by all kind of "partisan" lawyers as well depending on the "quality" and mindset of the elected people in the government.
Lots of "games" are played with it and the "lawyers" make fortunes from it. Also it creates "ton's" of paperwork and research into the past, what was done or written and its interpretation of it in "modern times". At a certain time it will "collapse" because of that in modern times things don't work anymore like it did 200 years ago. Take the "gun" laws for instance ( The "Second Amendment") where we still had "militia"; we have no longer "front loading muskets" but other "killing tools" which are much worse; but the laws for it are still not caught up to the times we live in. Case laws don't work because they also become outdated as the Second Amendment, the way it was written in those times. The very few "Amendments" on the Constitution show that at a given moment "case laws" also get outdated and have to be updated; which in the end becomes an impossible administrative situation.
Therefore Europe has not the "turmoil" as here related to "up to date" laws as it should be. So make it the same; I advise do as they did in Canada, which does not have such turmoil as here related to "laws".
Constitutional laws get outdated; our "impeachment" process showed already that there were no laws for it written in 1776. neither did they have intercontinal missiles, nukes, computers, cars, trains, planes and a "zillion lawyers" as well "world wars" or Putin types. Let alone "billionaires" who act like "god's"and have their own laws.
An"parliamentary" system keeps things up to date; what we have is an "self inflicted wound" with lots of bandages to stop the bleeding. The "paperwork" here is asking for lots of "anomalies" and " interpretation" ; it is like fumbling in an garbage heap to find your lost "diamond" with the help of lots of "zombies". It is an total "joke" as proven when we have elections etc.
The Constitution was written more than 200 hundred years ago; our society has changed so much that it may as well be the dead sea scrolls. People's life and living conditions are totally different than in in 1700. At given moment you can't "update" an "base law" anymore because of all the changes in the world since 1700. Therefore there were very few "Amendments" made but those are also not up to date anymore.
No wonder that this country stays in "turmoil" over and over again. However this country is very "stubborn" and "arrogant" and "knows" it all; thus there is little hope that they will chose an better working uniform "law" system. But yeah "Rome" did the same thing and the result is known.
You can't run an country with "ego trippers" and "smart crooks" alone. Laws and "rules should be strictly adhered too; depending if the "laws" and "rules" are sound "without loopholes" or "outdated". Ask "Rittenhouse" how fantastic it works for him.
Dutch, I do not deny the problems. That being said I would like to know how Europe “adapts their base laws on a daily basis”. Kindly give me an example. I do think a parliamentary system would be better due to some of the things that you point out. However, my comment re: problems in Europe stands due to the rise of the Law and Justice Party in Poland, Sweden having a RW government take power, the rise of the far right in Germany and France and an actual Fascist taking the reins of government in Italy. Europe is not immune to the impulses of stupidity that are running around in the U.S. The same things which cause chaos here are evident there. I am not talking about guns or idiot politicians as those are symptomatic. Underlying causes include networks/interconnectedness, speed of information movement and movement of humans on scale. Social upheaval is being driven by technological upheaval. Unfortunately, despite the rose-colored glasses of many tech worshippers someone, a human, ALWAYS controls the gates and thereby who benefits from tech. Control equals power and wealth. That control can be and is used for less than noble purposes. Tech upheaval is leaving far too many people in the dust which gives rise to anger.
