The Netherlands (my country) is a country under a Constitution, a country under law *) Our Constitution is now subverted on several points. One attack is that a newly made article 90 and subsequent articles elevate a treaty above our constitution (!). Part of this attack is that a treaty can be accepted by a 2/3rd majority of the representative houses when it is in violation of the Constitution (!). Another part of this attack is that a treaty and even decisions of bodies of international law of various peoples (meaning not just Dutch people but for example the EU or UN) have direct validity within the Dutch nation (!). In the meantime there are still the previous more proper laws in our Constitution on how to change the constitution (!).
