It is proposed to add this sentence to constitution of the German land Hesse:

> Die Vertraulichkeit und Integrität informationstechnischer Systeme werden gewährleistet.

> Confidentiality and integrity of information technology systems will be guaranteed.

How come wishful thinking can be written down in constitution?

@saper Some might say that ANY constitution is wishful thinking, if people don't enforce it.

@edvonaderkas well, yes, but this particular sentence struck me as something very strange.


@saper Constitutions are weird. They're combinations of quite practical rules meant to be enforced AND a vague statement of what the state wants to be.

And that's just the states that have written constitutions.
