“Irish Vote to Remove Law on Blasphemy,” The Wall Street Journal, October 29, 2018 A10. Although no one has been convicted of violating the law in 80 years, stage is set to repeal law making it a crime to say something offensive to religious sensibilities.

Do your policies and procedures set up controls that are sufficiently clear? And if the voters can amend the constitution on a 65% vote, who is in charge? As culture changes, do your controls keep pace?
And if you never enforce a control, does that mean it’s working?
