Open Thread: Discussing the 'Yes' and 'No' Campaigns on the Proposed Constitution

Everyone it seems agrees that the proposed constitution is far from perfect, even defective. The contention is whether or not those defects are of such a fundamental nature as to render the document unacceptable, even worse than the status quo.

What is your informed opinion of the draft? Is it better than the current document and in what ways? Also, what are the social, economic and political costs of replacing the old one? Are we discarding an unsavory part of our history and if so, are we doomed to repeat it? Discuss in comments below.
