Without the US constitution

Without the US constitution there would be no education

 

Without education there would be no internet

 

Without the internet there would be no forum

 

Without a forum there would be no place to post stupid shit

 

If there was no stupid shit there would be no stupid people

 

If there were no stupid people we would need no constitution

I'll stop you at 2. Its status as a common phrase does not equate to its being a fact.
Lets do a game. Russia starts WW3, against the will or knowledge of any Russian. 7 billion people die. A few thousand remain. All are clueless and pissed, but everyone except the Russian survivors know that Russia started and ended everything. Those Russians won't be blissfull when they run into some Europeans who want to string them alive, but they will be ignorant of the fact there's a good reason everyone wants to fuck them over.
In conclusion, ignorance /= bliss.

She is undomesticated! I am very excite.

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

 You can stop at 1. The Constitution does not guarantee happiness. In fact, it makes absolutely no reference to happiness at all.

True the pursuit is guaranteed as long as it does not step on the toes of others...

Throughout human history as our species has faced the frighten terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are and where we are going; it has been the authority (the political, the religious, and the educational authorities) who have attempted to comfort us. By giving us order, rules, and regulation. Informing or forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question these authorities. THINK FOR YOURSELF…

It doesn't even guarantee that. The phrase "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" comes from the declaration of independence, a document that has absolutely no legal authority. The word happiness does not appear anywhere in the constitution. Nor does the constitution guarantee life or liberty, it only promises that the government will not deprive a person of life or liberty without due process of law.

 In Hungary at some

 

In Hungary at some universities or high schools or courses outside the university, people have to sign a paper or say something into a video camera, that they disclaim his/her constitutional rights (or fundamental human rights) in return the education.

You have to disclaim your constitutional rights in hospitals before surgeries, if not, you need a lawyer, that wastes more money than the surgery costs.

This prevents sueing the university or high school or course or hospital.

I do not think that this is a good solution, because the government misusing it. Sometimes you believe that you have the specific rights, after at the police station they say, sorry you have disclaimed.

About fundamental human rights you can read at (it is simple to read, google translation can translate it)

(it is declared on the paper that of which one do you disclaim)

- rights to live, rights to health...
