“The Constitution is a cultural product, with a very particular claim: that once a certain cultural level has been reached in the field of constitutional law, it cannot be abandoned, but at least preserved and even improved. This is clear in the “irreversibility of human rights”, a principle that means that once certain rights are integrated into the system of rights of a democratic state, it is not possible to consider them derogated later, in case the international source disappears.” German Bidart Campos
“Limiting political power means limiting the holders of power; this is the core of what appears in the ancient and modern history of politics as constitutionalism.” Karl Loewenstein
