After two centuries of constitutional development and one century of Federation, Australia is reconsidering its federal Constitution. We may choose to alter the preamble to our Constitution, or to distribute the powers of government in different ways, or to define new limits to the powers of government. Whatever changes are made to the Constitution, it must serve not only the present generation, but future generations in a future world dealing with problems that are presently unforeseen.
