(2) The Romanian State motivates the above mentioned selection, with the view of granting the
right to vote, by the wretched experience of the electoral practice during the period after the
carrying out of the Romanian Revolution of December 1989. Thus, granting the right to vote to all
persons who reached a certain age ( without analyzing correspondingly the moral and intellectual
capacity and especially the availability of a responsible participation in the electoral official
actions), contributed in a decisive manner, by the massive absenteeism and the voting at random,
without full knowledge of the case or even in total ignorance, or by sale of votes, to the serious
qualitative deterioration of the authentic democracy and, consequently, to the degeneration of
the democratic State into a pseudo-democratic State, with catastrophic results at the societal
level, which, in time, led to the installing of a societal crisis, particularly grave, with disastrous
effects not only on the maintaining of the authentic State of law, but even on the existence of the

stipulated as conceptual, constitutional basis, within Article 1.

decent living, at societal level.
(2) The main guaranteeing institution, officially authorized to warrant the granting and observing
of the individual right, mentioned at paragraph (1), is the Ombudsman’s Institution.
(3) The right to a dignified and decent living of every inhabitant of Romania (temporary-resident,
native, citizen, patriot) is a special and specifically human right, in a civilized State, but especially in
the context in which the Romanian State was declared, at the constitutional level: as a national,
ruled by law, democratic and social State, in Article 1, as well as in the context in which, in the

cannot ensure the granting of the right to a dignified and decent living to every inhabitant of

(5) Since the standard of dignified and decent living is a societal parameter which reflects not only
the degree of civilization of a State but also the degree of societal unity and solidarity of its
inhabitants, on the one hand, respectively the degree of lack of civilization as well as the degree of
disunity and discord of its inhabitants, on the other hand, the societal aspects, mentioned before,

object of a special law, made for this purpose.
(6) The granting of the right to a dignified and decent living, to all inhabitants of Romania who
cannot ensure by themselves the right in question, entirely or just in part, out of reasons officially

and compensatory allowance and by granting of some services, adequately compensated
financially, provided by State institutions, authorized for this purpose.

meritocratic character of the Romanian State, stipulated at the constitutional level, in the sense
that the level of dignified and decent living, which should be ensured to those inhabitants of
Romania, who cannot secure it by themselves, entirely or in part, out of reasons officially
appreciated as objective, and which cannot be imputed, entirely, to the person in question, will be
adequately differentiated for the inhabitants officially appreciated as meritorious, at social level
and at societal level respectively (citizens, patriots), as compared to the inhabitants officially
appreciated as non-meritorious, at social level and at societal level respectively (temporary-
(8) Until the adequate solving of the situation of grave societal crisis in which the Romanian State
is, in the context of the need to concretely apply the principle of population solidarity, with the
purpose of removing the serious disadvantaging, at societal level, of some population categories,
out of reasons, officially appreciated as objective, and which cannot be imputed, entirely, to the
respective disadvantaged population categories, between the minimum wage and maximum
wage, set out to be granted officially to the employees from the State institutions and enterprises,
respectively to the state employees from the mixed, state-private, institutions and enterprises, it
is fixed a maximum ratio of 1:10, which should be taken into account in order to be applied by the

State institutions, authorized to this end.
(9) The inhabitants of Romania have the right to pension, maternity leave, free medical care,
within the State health units, unemployment aid as well as to other forms of social assistance and
social insurances respectively, stipulated at the constitutional and legislative level and provided by

(10) The right to a dignified and decent living includes also the adequate protection of those
inhabitants of Romania who, in total or just partial unawareness of the case, have come to the
situation of becoming victims of some occult, subversive, decadent and even destructive
organizations, at the existential level, of religious type and masonic type respectively. The above
mentioned situation is exemplified by the imposing, based on specific falsely-religious deception,
of the acceptance of the existential status of “slave” and “servant” respectively, of some beings
popularly but also generically named “ Dumnezeu ( God )”, respectively of the acceptance of the
self-reclusion, officially, by entering a convent/monastery, respectively by the interdiction of the
family association, respectively by the interdiction to practice normal sexual relations, as well as
by the compulsion, in the above mentioned conditions, to practice deviationist sexual relations of
homosexual, lesbian, bisexual types, respectively by impeding the full development of the specific
human personality and by other restrictions as well, often aberrant and specifically unsocial and
un-societal, imposed at the religious level, concerning the interdiction to use the mass-media
means, respectively the interdiction to accept certain medical treatments etc. In the above
mentioned context, it should also be known, inclusively as a motivation, the fact that at the

some international religions ( of Christian type) to officially consider and recognize the Christianity
as a spiritual and civilizational foundation of the continental European civilization.

(2) In the context mentioned above at paragraph (1), in which it is stipulated that the marriage is

case of the Christian-Catholic religion), as well as the practice of other similar religious rituals in
which the types of persons mentioned above are considered and treated, in partial or even total
unawareness of the case, in deceptive and degrading ways, from the human point of view
(example: by entering a monastery/convent, by sacrament, by confession), without knowing the
corresponding specific esoteric effects at the existential level, that may be produced on them by
the voluntary submission to the practice of the respective ways of existence and rituals,

existentially handicapped persons, and in case of need, the hiring of a caretaker, respectively the
granting of an allowance, as social support, as well as the organizing of specific social events, for
the existentially handicapped persons.
(4) On the other hand, the Romanian State follows-up, officially, through institutions authorized to
this end, the way in which the existentially handicapped persons are looked after, in order not to
be subjected to pressures and abuses or not to subject themselves to some degrading situations
(example: begging for their own benefit or for some other persons’ benefit), as well as in order to
verify the way in which the funds and the specific equipment granted by the State to the
existentially handicapped persons are used.
(5) The Romanian State supports, as far as possible, the specific integration of the existentially
handicapped persons, into the social activity, respectively the societal activity, inclusively by
