“Demokratie, Rechtsstaat, Gewaltenteilung, Grundrechte, ein freies politisches Leben und das Recht auf eine wirksame Opposition”

Democracy, rule of law, separation of powers, basic rights, a free political life and the right to an effective opposition.

A pundit professor on public broadcaster ARD said these are in principle the “core substance” of the German constitution [Grundgesetz] and what that document means by the “freiheitliche demokratische Grundordnung” [basic underlying free democratic order], which it said political parties in Germany can be banned for attempting to impair or eliminate. On 03 Dec 2013 the Bundesrat submitted another petition to the supreme constitutional court in Karlsruhe asking the court to ban the neonazi-esque N.P.D. party on grounds such as these, based this time on party members’ public statements rather than evidence collected from paid informants.

The German constitution outlaws actions that reduce democracy for future generations.
