Preamble to the Terranian constitution:
Terra is our home, our parents feeding us and protecting us against the hostile outer space.
Mankind is the first Terranian species having the ability to destroy Terra and itself.
Up to now, mankind could not survive without Terra.
Today mankind is on the way to change Terra in a way that - although Terra will survive - its going to be like hell for mankind ... and most of existing species.
Unless mankind changes the rules and their habits ...
