PERKULIAN BASIS AND DEFINITIONS PANCASILA
All citizens of the unitary Republic of Indonesia was supposed to learn, explore, and develop and practice Pancasila in the life of society, nation and state in accordance with their respective capabilities. Levels of the Pancasila lessons that can be associated with levels of scientific knowledge. The level of scientific knowledge of descriptive knowledge, causal knowledge, normative knowledge, and knowledge essential. Descriptive knowledge to answer the question of how to describe nature, while the causal knowledge to provide answers to scientific questions why, so as to cause and effect (causality). Pancasila has four movement: materialist movement (the origin of the ingredients of Pancasila), formalist movement (origin form), efficient movement (the origin of the work), and movement finalists (origin destination).Normative level of knowledge is a result of scientific inquiry where. The essential knowledge propose a solution to the question of what, (what exactly), is a problem because it is expected to know the deepest essence. Essential knowledge about Pancasila is to gain knowledge about the essence or meaning of the deepest principles of Pancasila is the philosophical or to assess its nature. Lessons or lectures at colleges, therefore, certainly not the same as Pancasila lesson given in high school. Greater responsibility to learn and develop Pancasila was actually related to the freedom he had.Pancasila education goal is to establish a strong national character, as well as to foster attitudes and behavior in accordance with the values and norms of Pancasila. Pancasila lecture goal is for students to understand, appreciate and implement Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution in everyday life as a citizen of Indonesia, and a knowledge and understanding of a variety of basic problems of society, nation and state are going to be overcome with the thought that based on Pancasila and the Constitution , 1945.
KNOWLEDGE AS PANCASILA ILMIAHRIf scientific knowledge is said to fulfill the terms of the berobjek scientific, methodical, applying, and is universal. Berobjek divided the material object and formal object. Material objects means having goals that were examined, also called subject matter (subject matter) is something that is intended or used as material for investigation.

Pancasila has and meets the requirements of the scientific knowledge that can be studied scientifically.In addition to fulfilling the requirements as scientific knowledge. Pancasila also has a logical arrangement of unity, the relationship between the principle that organic, hierarchical and pyramidal-shaped structure, and complement and qualify.Pancasila can also be placed as an object of scientific study, the approach is intended to appreciation and implementation of Pancasila which is a highlight material decomposition based on existing materials and with all the descriptions that can always be round and systematically returned to the material .

Module 2ORIGIN PANCASILATHEORY OF ORIGIN PANCASILAThe origin of the basic philosophy of Pancasila State distinguished:1. Causa materialist (the origin of the material) is derived from the Indonesian nation itself, contained in the customs, culture and religion-the religion.2. Causa formalist (origin form or wake up) meant how Pancasila was established formula as stated in the Preamble to the Constitution of 1945. In this case BPUPKI have a decisive role.3. Efficient causa (the origin of the work) is the origin of the increase of Pancasila Pancasila prospective basis to a legitimate state as the state. The origin of the work in this regard is that nation-forming PPKI then validate and make Pancasila as the basic philosophy of the State after through discussion in its sessions.4. Causa finalists (origin destination) is the goal of the formulation and discussion of the Pancasila as the state was about to serve. To get to the finalists kausan required movement or the origin of the connection.
Pancasila elements derived from the Indonesian people themselves, although formally a new Pancasila became the basis of the Republic of Indonesia on August 18, 1945, but long before that date Indonesia has had elements of Pancasila and even implement them in their lives. BangsaIndonesia history provides evidence that we can find in a variety of customs, writing, language, arts, beliefs, religion and culture in general, for example:1. In Indonesia never-ending believer in God, the evidence: buildings of worship, holy books of various religions and faiths to the Almighty God, the religious ceremony on the anniversary of the religion, religious education, houses of worship, writing bouquet of history / myth that contains religious values.

In terms of Social Justice for All People of Indonesia, the Indonesian nation in the discharge of his duties famous more social and be fair to others, the evidence is the existence of water dams, river levees, land villages, wells together, lumbungdesa, writing the history of the kingdom of Kalinga, History of the King Erland, Sunan Kalidjaga, Ratu Adil, Jake Tarub, Teja orphanage, and so on, water jug in front of the house, salvation, and so on.
Pancasila is the crystallization of cultural actual values well excavated from the Indonesian nation. Referred to as crystallization good values. The fifth principle in Pancasila is a series of elements should not be disconnected from one another. However, sometimes there are outside influences that cause discontinuity between the results in concrete actions with cultural values.
ORIGINS OF THE FORMAL PANCASILABPUPKI formed on April 29, 1945. This allows any agency to prepare its Independence bangsaIndonesia legally, to formulate what conditions must be met as an independent country. Investigation Agency Efforts Preparation of Indonesian Independence was appointed on May 28, 1945 by Gunseikan (Head of Government Japanese army in Java). The investigative body convened only twice. The first hearing date of May 29 to June 1, 1945, while the second trial until July 10 to July 17, 1945. In the first trial M. Yamin and Sukarno proposed on the basis of the state, while the state Supomo about integrative understanding.The follow-up to discuss the basis of the state formed a small committee or a committee of nine which was on June 22, 1945 succeeded in formulating the draft mukaddimah (opening) Basic Law, which by Mr. Muhammad Yamin called Jakarta Charter or Charter Jakarta.BPUPKI second trial to determine the basic formulation as a country that would be independent mutual agreement. BPUPKI members during the second trial this plus six new members. BPUPKI full trial on July 10, 1945 to receive the results of a small committee or a committee of nine so-called Jakarta Charter. In addition to receiving the results of the formulation committee formed nine committees also Basic Law, which are grouped into three groups namely the Basic Law Committee designer: 1) Designer of the Basic Law Committee chaired by Ir. Soekarno with members totaling 19 2) Defenders of the Homeland Committee chairman Abikusno Tjokrosujoso with 23 members 3) economic and financial committee chairman Moh.

Small committees that in its meeting on 11 and 13 July 1945 have been able to complete the task Independence Preparatory Committee (Dokuritsu Zyunbi Linkai), which is often called the Committee for Indonesian Independence (PPKI). The first hearing on August 18, 1945 PPKI endorsed the Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia and set: prepare draft Basic Law. The next trial date of July 14, 1945 approved the manuscript BPUPKI formulation nine committee called Jakarta Charter as Mukaddimah Draft Basic Law, and on July 16, 1945 to receive the entire designCompleted Basic Law was formulated and in which also includes the Jakarta Charter as mukaddimah.The last day of the trial BPUPKI dated July 17, 1945, a trial closure Investigation Agency Efforts Preparation of Indonesian Independence and the agency completed the task.

On August 22, 1945 hearing held PPKI fourth. This session discussed the formation of the National Committee of Indonesian National Party. After completion of the fourth trial, then PPKI indirectly disbanded, and its members became part of the Central Indonesian National Committee (KNIP). KNIP members coupled with the leaders of the people of all classes or flows of Indonesian society.Pancasila formulations are historically divided into three groups.1. Pancasila formulation contained in the Board of Inquiry hearings Efforts Preparation of Indonesian Independence which are proposed as a foundation of the Republic of Indonesia.2. Pancasila formula set by the Independence Preparatory Committee Indonesiasebagai basic philosophy of the Indonesian state is closely related to the Declaration of Independence.3. Some formulations in Indonesian constitutional changes during the formulation of Pancasila not apply again contained in the Preamble to the 1945 Constitution.
Of the three groups listed above in more detail the formulation of Pancasila to the issuance of a Presidential Decree dated July 5, 1959 there are seven namely:1. Formulation of Mr. Muh. Yamin on May 29, 1945, delivered in a speech "principle and the State of nationality of the Republic of Indonesia" (Formula I).2. Formulation of Mr. Muh.

Formulation in the community, such as mukaddimah Provisional Constitution, but the fourth precept reads Sovereignty of the People, it is unclear origin (Formula VII).
Module 3FUNCTION AND STATUS PANCASILAPancasila as the stateBasic state is the fundamental base or footing and be able to provide power to the establishment of a state. Indonesian state also built based on a foundation or footing that is Pancasila. Pancasila, in its function as the state, a source of legal rules governing the Republic of Indonesia, which includes all the elements that the government, and the people of the region. Pancasila in a position like this that are the foundation of state administration and the entire life of the Republic of Indonesia.Pancasila as the state has to make sense of Pancasila as the basis for a set of governance. The consequence is that Pancasila is the source of all sources of law. This puts the Pancasila as the state which means implementing Pancasila values in all the legislation in force. Therefore, it should be all the legislation in the Republic of Indonesia based on Pancasila.Pancasila as the state of the Republic of Indonesia has implications that Pancasila is bound by a force of law, bound by formal power structure, and includes the atmosphere of mysticism or ideals that controls the country's basic law (Suhadi, 1998). Ideals of law or mystical atmosphere are summarized in the Preamble of the four main ideas of 1945 where essentially the same four Pancasila. Preamble of the four main ideas of 1945 is further manifested in the articles of the Constitution of 1945. Then from the articles of the Constitution of 1945 was described again in a lot of other legislation, such as MPR decrees, laws, government regulations, and so forth.
PANCASILA VIEWS AS A LIVINGEvery human in the world has a definite outlook on life. Outlook on life is a thorough insight into the lives of a series consisting of unity noble values. Outlook on life serves as a guide to set up relationships with fellow human beings, the environment and regulate man's relationship with God.Worldview of a society that believed it would evolve dynamically and generate a live view of the nation. Crystallization of the nation's view of life is believed to be the values that truth and benefits by a nation that was able to grow her determination to make it happen in the day-to-day life stance.Every nation in any definite guidelines always have a way of living which is used as a reference in the social life. Similarly, the Indonesian nation. For Indonesia, which is believed to be the truth hdup attitude is called Pancasila. The values contained in the principles of Pancasila is derived from the culture of Indonesia itself. Therefore, the Pancasila as the core of the cultural values of Indonesia, Pancasila can be referred to as moral ideals bangsaIndonesia. Moral ideals is then providing guidance, grip or spiritual strength to the Indonesian people living in the community, state and nation. Pancasila in addition to a moral ideals for the people of Indonesia, as well as the agreement of the noble nation of Indonesia. Pancasila as stated in the Preamble to the Constitution of 1945 is the result of mutual agreement bangsaIndonesia which at that time represented by PPKI. Therefore Pancasila is the deal with all the people of Indonesia Pancasila is supposed to be respected and upheld.
Module 4PANCASILA AND OPENING UUD'45PANCASILA RELATIONS AND OPENING UUD'45Formal relations between Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution: that the formulation of Pancasila as the Indonesian state is as stated in the Preamble UUD'45; Opening UUD'45 that resident and serves in addition as well as a Preamble UUD'45 coexisting itself as preamble '45 Pancasila which essentially does not depend on the torso UUD'45, even as its source, that Pancasila as the core Open UUD'45 thus have a strong position, still, can not be changed and is attached to the survival of the State of RI.On the relationship between Pancasila and PembukaanUUD Materials 1945: Pancasila Formulation Process: BPUPKI session discusses the basic philosophy of Pancasila, and then discuss the opening UUD'45; subsequent trial composed of the Jakarta Charter as a form of opening the first form UUD'45.
ESSENTIAL POSITION OPENING UUD'45Preamble of the 1945 Constitution has a very important position for the survival of the Indonesian nation since the proclamation is attached on August 17, 1945, so it can not be changed either formal or material.

All elements of the law that is the source material and source of value to the state and positive law of Indonesia.
Module 5IMPLEMENTATION PANCASILARATIONALE AND IMPLEMENTATION PANCASILAVarious forms of deviation from the thinking and implementing Pancasila's happening because of the violation of the principles that need to be considered. These principles can be divided into two, namely the principle in terms of intrinsic (inside) and the principle in terms of extrinsic (outside). Pancasila in terms of intrinsic should be consistent, coherent, and correspondent, while in terms of extrinsic Pancasila should be able to be a dealer and the interests of both horizontal and vertical filters.There are some opinions that try to answer what pathways can be used to devise and implement Pancasila. Pranarka (1985) explains that there are two lines of thought formal Pancasila, the state lines of political thought and academic thinking path. While Professor Notonagoro (1974) describes the implementation of the two-lane Pancasila, namely objective and subjective point.Historical development of thought Pancasila shows the complexity and heterogeneity sight problems. Complexity of these issues include (1) source of the problem, (2) interpretation problems, (3) implementation issues, (4) the issue of whether the Pancasila Subject to change, and (5) problems of evolution and complexity in thinking about thinking Pancasila. The contentious issues are loaded with interest. Complexity of solving various problems of the above can be reached by two paths, namely the path state political thought, and track academic thinking.Lines of thought, namely the translation of Pancasila as the state ideology of the nation, the State and sources of law set out in various laws and political policies. The organizer is obliged to describe the state of Pancasila values into the legislation and various policies and actions. Pancasila translation purposes in this context is to take concrete and practical decisions. The methodology used is to view the law as a methodology, as has been stipulated by the Constitution.Problem of Pancasila not everything can be solved through state politics alone, but require other pathways that help provide criticism and suggestions for thinking Pancasila, the point is academic pathways, namely the scientific approach, ideological, theological, or philosophical.State political thought its main purpose is to decision-making or policy, then prefer the pragmatic aspect, so it is sometimes less attention to aspects of coherence, consistency, and correspondence. As a result sometimes counter-productive policies and contrary to the values of Pancasila. Thus academic thinking and serve as a source of criticism for the state of political thought. Instead the cases that can not be solved by policy makers is a valuable input for the development of academic thinking. Each academic thinking is not necessarily applicable in state policy, state policy instead each has validity or not necessarily a high level of validity when tested academically.Lines of thought is strongly associated with the implementation of the pathway. Implementation of Pancasila can be classified into two major pathways, namely the implementation of the objective and subjective, both of which are an integral and inseparable.Objective is the implementation of the implementation in the form of the realization of the values of Pancasila on every aspect of state governance, both at the legislative, executive, and judiciary, and all areas of the state and especially its realization in the form of laws and regulations of Indonesia. Subjective execution, which means execution in the person of every citizen, every individual, every resident, every ruler and every Indonesian. According to the implementation of Pancasila subjectively Notonagoro this very important role, because it determines the success or failure of the implementation of Pancasila. This subjective implementation by Notonagoro formed gradually through a process of education, both formal, non-formal, and informal family and community environment. Results will be obtained in the form of knowledge, awareness, obedience, ability and habits, mentality, character and conscience inspired by Pancasila.As good as any product legislation, if not carried out by the organizers of the country then there is no meaning, no matter how well the opposite stance, but state officials are not supported by systems and structures conducive it will not produce anything up.Implementation of Pancasila as the objective of the State shall carry legal implications, meaning that non-compliance to the Pancasila in this sense may be punishable by the law firm, while the implementation of Pancasila subjectively obligatory moral implications. Meaning that emerged more sanctions as sanctions of conscience or society.
RATIONALE AND REFORM IMPLEMENTATION PANCASILAReforms can be interpreted as narrowly re-arrange bad situation into a better state. Reform is sometimes misinterpreted as a demonstration of the radical movement, "all may", looting or "ouster" a certain ruler. Some important notes that must be taken to ensure that people do not misunderstand reform, among others, as follows.1. Reform not revolution2. Require reform process3. Reform requires change and sustainable4. Reforms involving structural and cultural problems5. Requires reform priorities and agenda6. Reform requires direction
A variety of factors are driving the emergence of the reform movement, among others: First, the accumulated frustration of the people, especially the injustices in the field of law, economics and politics, and second, the economic crisis is not finished; Third, the rise of democratic consciousness, fourth, rampant corruption, fifth, criticism and proposed changes are not considered.Total reform movement demanding reform, means fixing all the order of statehood, whether legal, political, economic, socio-cultural, defense and others. But in the early days of the reform movement, an urgent agenda to be realized are: first, to overcome the crisis and, second, to implement reforms, and continue the development of the third. To be able to carry out the necessary reform agenda reference value, in this context the relevance of Pancasila interesting to talk about.The existence of Pancasila in reform amid demands and reform euphoria was still considered relevant, considering, among other things: first, Pancasila is considered the only remaining national assets and are expected to still be able to be the glue that united almost torn rope. This belief is supported by the Pancasila as the unifying role, it has been proven historically and sociologically pluralistic nation of Indonesia is very good in terms of ethnicity, geography, or religion. Second, Legally, Pancasila is the State, if the basic state change, then transformed the country. This is supported by the argument that the proponents of the reform movement that does not require amending the 1945 Constitution which there is contained the main ideas that the 1945 Constitution is the embodiment of the values of Pancasila.The most fundamental criticism addressed to the Pancasila is not only between theory and reality, between thinking with implementation. Then the demands for reform are put Pancasila in a unity between thought and execution. Reform movement criticized the tendency of Pancasila as the use of power tools, eventually placed under the rule of law. Pancasila be used to get rid of the myths and other groups who disagree.Some proposals can still be debated, but it is important that efforts to reform the Pancasila thinking, among other things: First, it directs thought Pancasila which tends toward the abstract more concrete. Secondly, the thought of directing a very ideological tendencies (for the legitimacy of power) to the scientific. Third, directing thought Pancasila from objective to subjective tendencies, namely by shifting the egocentrism of thought by eliminating personal, group, or party, with the growing awareness of pluralism, both social pluralism, politics, culture, and religion.Various forms of irregularities, especially in the state and political thought in implementation is possible due to several reasons, including, among others: First, the gap or ketidakkonsisten in making laws or regulations to the philosophy, principles and legal norms. Is like building a house, philosophy, principles and the rule of law is the foundation, the constitution and other legislation under a building that was built outside the foundation. This fact has implications on institutions of higher highs and the state can not function optimally portray. The legal experts argue for the amendment of the 1945 Constitution and institutions to develop and optimize the judicial review which have substantial independence to test a product and procedural law.Second, the weakness lies in the actions of state officials is rampant collusion, corruption and nepotism, as well as the legitimacy of the use of law as a tool of power and get rid of political opponents and economics.Socialization Pancasila also received sharp criticism in an era of reform, so No. MPR exit. XVIII/MPR/1998 to revoke MPR Decree No.. II/MPR/1978 about P-4. Various proposals Pancasila was thinking about socialization among others: avoid jargon that is not rooted in concrete reality and just be empty words without meaning, as an example slogan about the "Miracle Pancasila", the slogan that the Indonesian people have always been single berbhineka ika, whereas in reality the Indonesian people fighting each other from the first well, implement Pancasila strict and consistent manner, and others. Avoiding the meaning of Pancasila as passive and neutral proposition, but is more geared towards a more operational meaning, for example: Pancasila should be read as an active verb sentences, such as community and should negaraIndonesia ..... Oneness of God, to humanize man be more just and civilized, unite Indonesia, led the people with wisdom / wisdom in a representative consultative process, creating justice for all Indonesian people. Socialization is also expected to be in the context of the intellectual life of the nation, not as in the case membodohkannya-upgrading upgrading P-4, so socialization is more critical, participatory, dialogic, and argumentative.
Module 6PANCASILA AND ACTUAL PROBLEMSPANCASILA PROBLEMS AND SARAThe conflict can be either vertical or horizontal conflict. Eg vertical conflict between the powerful with the weak, between the rulers and the people, the majority of the minority, and so on. While the conflict is shown as horizontal inter-religious conflicts, tribal, atarras, intergroup, and so on. This gap is a potential for conflict.Empirical data shows that Indonesia is one country that is composed of various elements of a very pluralistic, both in terms of ethnicity, religion, race, and class. This plurality on the one hand can be a huge potential in the development of the nation, but on the other hand is also a potential source for the emergence of the various conflicts that lead to the disintegration of the nation.In principle Pancasila is built on awareness of the complexity, heterogeneity or a plurality of reality and outlook. It means everything in the name of Pancasila but do not pay attention to this principle, it will fail.Various normative provisions, among others: First, 3rd Pancasila Sila explicitly mentioned "the unity of Indonesia". Second, the 1945 Explanation of the Principles of Mind in the Preamble, especially the first big idea. Third, the articles of the 1945 Constitution on citizens, especially the rights of citizenship. Fourth, recognition of the uniqueness and distinctiveness that came from various regions in Indonesia are also recognized, (1) as contained in the explanation of 1945 on Regional Government that recognizes the uniqueness of the area, (2) Explanation of Article 32 of the 1945 Constitution on the tops of the regional culture and acceptance of foreign cultures in accordance with Indonesian culture, (3) an explanation of Article 36 of the veneration of the local languages. Presumably it can be concluded that the normative, the founding fathers of Indonesia upholds the plurality that is in the nation of Indonesia, both the plurality of local government, culture, language and others.Precisely plurality is a very valuable asset for the glory of the nation. Some principles that can be extracted from the Pancasila as an alternative to thinking in order to solve the problem of racial intolerance, among others: First, Pancasila is understood that admits a plurality of reality, but try to summarize it in a container on Indonesia. Unity should not eliminate the existing plurality, plurality should not be otherwise destroy the unity of Indonesia. Understand the implications of this are various laws and regulations that are inconsistent with this view needs to be revised, if necessary, removed, because otherwise it would bring social and political risks are high. Second, the source material is in the tri Pancasila prakara, from religious values, customs and habits in a state of life that is accepted by society. In this context the idea of tolerance, harmony, unity, and so ideally excavated from religious values, customs, and habits of life that is accepted by society bernegera
HAM AND PROBLEMS PANCASILAHuman rights by the United Nations, is the inherent right of humanity, which is impossible without human rights to live like a human being. Thus the existence of human rights is seen as an axiom that is given, in the sense that the truth should be perceived directly and does not require further explanation (Anhar Gonggong, et al., 1995: 60).Issue of human rights is a complex issue, there are at least three major issues that must be considered in discussing human rights issues, among others: First, human rights are issues that are being talked about, because (1) the topic of human rights is one of the three major problems become global concerns. The three topics of concern, among others: human rights, democracy and environmental protection. (2) The issue of human rights is raised by the mass media each received a warning in December as the Charter of Human Rights by the UN General Assembly on December 10, 1948. (3) Human rights issues in particular sometimes associated with bilateral relations between donor and recipient countries. The issue of human rights is often used as an excuse to pressure economically and politically.Second, laden with human rights issues between the familiar tug of universalism and particularism. Understand human rights universalism assumes that the size is universal applied in all corners of the world. While particularism understand the view that each nation has a unique perception of human rights in accordance with the historical cultural background, so that every nation has the size and justified its own criteria.Third, There are three levels of discussions about human rights, namely (1) the philosophical level, who see human rights as a general moral principles and universally applicable because it involves the most basic human traits. (2) an ideological level, who see human rights in relation to the rights of citizenship, the nature of the particular, as they relate to a particular nation or country. (3) the level of practical policy because of its very particular attention to the circumstances that are incidental.View of Indonesia on human rights can be reviewed can be tracked in the Preamble of the 1945 Constitution, the 1945 Body Trunk, Tap-Tap MPR and the Law. Human rights in the Preamble of the 1945 Constitution is still very common, more detailed descriptions are translated in the body of the 1945 Constitution, among other things: The right to nationality (Article 26, paragraph 1, 2); rights of freedom of religion (Article 29 paragraph 2); Rights notch the same in law and in government (Article 27 paragraph 1); rights to freedom of association, assembly and of expression (Article 28), right to education (Article 31, paragraph 1, 2), the right to social security (Article 27, paragraph 2, Article 33 paragraph 3, Article 34). Important note concerning human rights issues in 1945, among other things: the first, was made prior to the issuance of the 1945 Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations in 1948, so it does not explicitly refer to human rights, but that was mentioned is the rights citizens. Second, the 1945 Constitution does not regulate Given the human rights provisions of the constitution as RIS settings and Provisional Constitution of 1950, but setting it in the form of delegated legislation submitted to Parliament and the President.Human rights issues are also regulated in MPR Decree No.. XVII/MPR/1998 on Human Rights. MPR contains views and attitudes towards Indonesia Nations Human Rights and the Charter of Human Rights.On the outlook and attitude of the Indonesian people against human rights, consisting of preliminary, foundation, history, approach and substance, as well as an understanding of human rights for the people of Indonesia. In the Charter of Human Rights consists of the opening and the torso is composed of 10 chapters 44 articlesIn the articles of the Human Rights Charter explicitly stipulated, among others:1. Right to life2. Family rights and continue the descent3. The right to develop themselves4. Rights justice5. The right to freedom6. Right to freedom of information7. Security rights8. Welfare rights9. Obligation to respect the rights of others and the obligation to defend the country10. Rights protection and promotion.

PANCASILA AND ECONOMIC CRISISEconomic growth that has occurred during the New Order has not been sustainable because of the huge economic inequalities, both intergroup, between regions, and between sectors eventually gave birth to the economic crisis. This crisis originated from the original dollar exchange rate changes are so high, and then spread to the economic crisis, and ultimately a crisis of confidence in all sectors of the economy not only.This economic failure was caused by failure to apply economic principles in the institutional, economic inequality, and others. which is also triggered by the rise of monopoly, collusion, corruption, and nepotism by state officialsIndonesia's economic system which is based on the philosophy of Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution, and the foundation of operational guidelines, often called Pancasila Economic System.

Act of 1945The Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia has always refer to the 1945 Constitution. This is because the state constitution drafted and adapted in 1945 when the founding of the republic, and clearly distinguish it from other konstituso introduced freely in Indonesia. Furthermore, the charge danri 1945 write clear goals and objectives for independence which was proclaimed on August 17, 1945 and maintain it at a later date.

1945 amendmentSince the reform era, the 1945 experience some amendments, additions and improvements as much as four times the annual session of the Assembly in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002. Amendment by covering so many themes which are as follows:1. PowerSince the beginning of the 1945 constitution adopted an ideology which states that the power vested in the people and implicitly delegated by the Advisory Council of the People. It adheres to an ideology of power MPR, MPR makes being a state institution which has authority because the Assembly is not limited to an institution that is the embodiment of all the people of Indonesia. Greatness and power without causing MPR this limit can be controlled by any state institution. This causes the MPR became a state institution whose greatest organ in the governance structure of state institutions Indonesian republic and is positioned as the highest state institution. Responding to an era of change, the views of the original 1945 Constitution no longer suited to the ideology of democracy which requires the implementation of control systems and internal balance among state institutions. To that end, the decision of article 2, paragraph 1 is converted into power in the hands of the people and delegated by the constitution.2. Structure and authority of the members of the People PemusyawaratanBefore the amendment, the Assembly membership structure consisting of members of the House of Representatives (DPR) including the Indonesian military and police representatives, Regional Representative (UD), and Representative Group (UG). Members of Parliament elected in the general election, while UD and UG is the result of an invitation. Invitation to all members of the Assembly deemed to be incompatible with the teaching and spirit of democracy, therefore the formulation was changed with the adjustment that all members of the Assembly should be elected by the people through elections. With this amendment, the structure of the Assembly membership includes members of the House of Representatives and the Regional Representative Council, a new representative institutions in order of statehood republic Indonesia3. 1945 Presidential authority to the principle of presidential administration. Both in terms of constitutional theory and practice in the government following the presidential system of government according to the konstitsui, the president has the power and role of the large and important. That's what happened in Indonesia. Therefore, it is logical that quite a lot of articles related to the authority of the presidency in the 1945, which is scattered in various chapters and verses, especially with regard to the start of declared war keuasaan to grant an apology.4. Direct election of the President and Vice President by the people since the founding of the Republic of Indonesia, the president and vice president elections conducted by representatives of the Assembly by an indirect mechanism. In connection with the spirit of democracy that requires the people below granted the right to elect the president and vice president directly, so that the parliamentary electoral system was changed to direct election system by rakyat.Jika conditions in the first round of elections were not met, a second round run carried out with partner with voice Most serial number one and number two in the first round. Couples who get the most votes will be sworn in as president and vice president.5. The term of office of President and Vice President Prior to amendment, formulation term president and vice president in the Constitution does not expressly atai 45 concrete set freukuensi tenure. Consequently, this opens up the opportunity for a wide range of interpretations. Amended 1945 Constitution stipulates that the president and vice president to serve for five years and can be reelected for the next term. This means that only Indonesian citizens could dipiluh as president and vice-president for a term of 10 years.6. Impeach the President and Vice President in the long term there is no clause in the 1945 Constitution that governs the dismissal of the president and / or vice president from office. Constitution just sets an article on presidential accountability before the extraordinary session of the Assembly which is based on the invitation of the House of Representatives. It is run when the House was the president really do violation of state policy outline.Currently the amended 1945 Constitution includes the factors and formal procedures that led to the dismissal of the president and / or vice president from office.7. The replacement of the President in the middle of the term of office by Vice President In 1945, the position of vice president is to help the president carry out his duties. The position makes the vice president automatically replace the president until the end of his term if the president dies, resigns, or is not able to perform his duties during his tenure.8. Executing tasks presidential Although unlikely, there is also another possibility in an emergency caused by, for example, the president and vice president die at the same time, resigned, and lowered or not able to perform their duties during his tenure. In this konsisi, policy makers who have a very strong formal legal dibutuhkan.Mengantisipasi cases like this 1945 as amended, stipulates that under such conditions it executing tasks presidential cabinet consists of three members, namely: Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister of the Interior and the Secretary of Defense.9. Establishment of the Advisory Board of the President and the removal of SAC DPA existence as a state agency, is equivalent to the first president and has the task of providing input and consideration to the president that ultimately considered less effektiv and efficiently. This is because the input and consideration given to the president is not mengikat.Berdasarkan these considerations, which amended the 1945 Constitution to remove the presence of DPA. Replace it a new constitution giving authority to the president for an advisory council has a duty to provide input and pertimbangna to the president.10. As minister of state constitutional ideologies presidential system of government, which amended the 1945 Constitution asserts that the state ministers, chosen and commissioned by the president, is the assistant to the president.11. Local regional governments are given the freedom and authority to utilize and manage natural resources owned, with products that legislation can improve the progress and prosperity of the region. Regional autonomy is executed and realized under the new unitary Republic Indonesia.Konstitusi as amended also requires the recognition of country and respect for local administrative unit, which has a special status and special.12. Regional Representatives Council amended 1945 introduces a new representative institutions in the governance structure of Indonesia. The institution is the Regional Representative Council (DPD), as stated in Article VII entitled A DPD.
National flagIndonesia is the national flag "Sang Saka Merah Putih". The flag consists of two colors, red above white. Where the width is two-thirds of its length, or two feet and three feet. Flown in front of the presidential palace, government buildings and offices in Indonesia and abroad. The first flag fluttering dashing first time in the midst of the Japanese occupation in the independence day ceremonies in front of the presidential palace in the capital Jakarta. This historical flag, or "heirloom flag" hoisted the last time on August 17, 1968. Since the flag is stored and replaced by a replica of the original silk woven from Indonesia.
State EmblemIndonesian state symbol is a golden eagle, also known as "Garuda" which is an ancient Indonesian epic figure. This symbol is also depicted in many of the temples from the 6th century. Eagle is a symbol of energy kreativ. Basic color is gold, mewatakkan greatness of a nation. The black color represents nature. There are 17 strands on each wing, 8 on the tail piece and 45 on the neck feathers. This shows the proclamation of Indonesia's independence date: August 17, 1945. Motto, "Unity in Diversity" (It varies but one also), is written on the tape that held by the eagle claw.
AnthemIndonesia is the national anthem "Indonesia Raya". The song was composed in 1928. The birth of Indonesia Raya marked the beginning of Indonesian nationalist movement. This song was introduced first time by the author, Wage Rudolf Supratman, the second Indonesian Youth Congress on 28 October 1928 in Batavia, now Jakarta Constitutional Change and Democracy essay Bambang Widjajanto Half a century ago, when a lot of people break away from colonial rule, the constitution meant as legal foundation provides the basis for a new identity and legitimacy of the new ruler. The past two decades, the constitution - for the country's new regime toppled dictator of his own people - understood as a new era towards a democratic system of rule. But it seems, the way that middle hacked Indonesia through constitutional changes actually lead to the formation of legislative supremacy is clearly different from the establishment of democratic rule.In general, if the Constitution could be talking about is not interesting. In the Indonesian context, see from the news in various media; conversation constitution just a mock news. Indeed, for most of the political scientist, the constitution 'somewhat neglected' existence. So keep the basic logic of common sense, the constitution contains only a collection of text, while the political game is often not based on the rules in the constitution, because the constitution is often not required in perebutankekuasaan. The most concrete example can be seen in the case of the Philippines and Indonesia. Dictator Suharto was ousted Marcos and not because of the rules in the constitution.Even for some legal circles, the constitution is only meant as a normative provisions governing the relationship between the institutions and citizens in a government. Until not so meaningful for the direct interest of law enforcement issues daily; also do not really need to debate whether that law enforcement will be closely related to the format and structure of power that should be regulated in the constitution. On the basis of these factors, then maybe talk to the constitution as it comes to fiction, because it does not directly touch persolan everyday. Or maybe even something less meaningful talk.Above facts may be true, especially when placed in the context of Indonesia's transition. See, Gus Dur feud news and some among the House of Representatives. Preaching tends to cover only political dispute, and the dispute was considered not related to the problem of power format, where the existing constitution does not regulate how to manage such conflicts. So the solution is offered only in the range of political compromise alone, rather than designing a power system that can manage the conflict between institutions of power. On one hand, the intensive dynamics between state agencies is important, but it does not mean Alau continue the ongoing conflict and unresolved is why there is no debate in depth discourse to construct a political format in order to manage the conflict between the democratic institutions of the state. Discourse that is not entered into the changes that occur in the Indonesian constitution. Also, it appears there is a comprehensive effort, so that people have access to control the power authority that do not arbitrarily. All about it, did not seem so important to didesakan in the constitutional changes. As a result, changes in the constitution an issue that is not desirable and is considered insignificant to the future of Indonesia.In fact, the constitution may be the 'power maps' of the format and structure of a political power. Because that's where the power is set how to work within a government. Where, structure, systems, character and functioning of a mechanism of power, can be formatted and tracked through the constitution. Even the power of software in the form of ideology or philosophy of a country, should also be found through the constitution. Also, in the konstitusilah, a government regulated power restrictions limitedly, in addition to the relationship between the state institutions. From here one day also be tracked whether the power system to accommodate a state system of government characterized by checks and balances system.In general, trying to say that the constitution should regulate and organizational framework includes a power, a basic law of government and the rules that guarantee the rights of citizens from arbitrary power. In short, the constitution became the basic law governing the working of a mechanism of power and that power should be directed to the interests and welfare of the people as a whole. At this point, the power system may be referred to as democratic.If the Constitution is defined as the above, it is too risky and so naive when changes in the Indonesian constitution submitted only to a particular group that actually has a vested interest to group interests only. Moreover, they are not truly represent the interests of all the people as members of the electoral system - the majority of whom became members of the Assembly and normatively have the authority to change the constitution - not elected directly by the people the true owners of sovereignty.There is a possibility, although it must be proven, some of the council deliberately hogging process of constitutional change. Normative argument that is always asked is Article 3 of the Constitution and Decree No.. IX/MPR/2000, where the legislation expressly states that the constitutional changes made by the Assembly. In a positive perspective, the motive behind the act was to restore the proportion monopoly over the function and authority of the parliament in a format and system of government. Because almost more than three decades, the Council only became a political instrument for the benefit of the executive alone. In another perspective, there are strong indications now there is a process known as legislative supremacy. Process like this, maybe not as good as the same potential with heavy executive that has ever happened during the past three decades.To prove this indication, some indication can be seen from the First Amendment to the Constitution in 1999. Changes from chapter 9, section 6 deals with changes in the role and authority of Parliament and the Assembly. The whole process of change that eliminates many presidential powers on the one hand, but to expand the authority of the board on the other. Cilakanya again, this change does not pretend to create a system of checks and balances between state institutions. Likewise in the Second Amendment of the Constitution, there are around four themes of change, namely: a Human Right, autonomous regional government, national defense and security as well as about territory, symbol of the state and citizens.In this change, there are about 5 different articles that further strengthens the authority of the Council. Call it for example, the council will have various other rights shall be governed by laws other than those mentioned in the constitution as limitative: interplasi rights, the inquiry, the right to express opinions, ask the right questions, suggestions and opinions expressed rights, the right of immunity, in addition to having a legislative function, budget and oversight. Meanwhile, the dismissal of members of the Council shall be regulated by law (which is not clear when it will be made).Through MPR Decree No.. III/MPR/2000, the right to judicial review of the provisions and regulations are typically owned by the judicial institutions taken over by the Assembly. Article 5 states that the above provision was authorized MPR testing legislation against the Constitution and Decree, while MA was tested peratauran under the Act.Above facts indicate that the parliament with all the inherent authority, the middle direct the political reconstruction process through constitutional changes to the legislative supremacy, regardless of the power system formation that leads to the system of checks and balances. That's why, in two constitutional changes that have been made, none of the mechanisms that can control authority board members, and that means people do not have access to control the abuse of power that would do the board members and assemblies.If the above facts can be used to strengthen the indication that it is now there is a tendency that leads to legislative supremacy, then obviously the Council and Assembly would eliminate all the interests that seek to question the authority to make changes in the constitution. Because then, the parliament will be able to control the process of change in accordance with its own interests. So, with that, the parliament would reject any conscious effort not want a constitutional amendment process is handled by them. In fact, the constitutional changes made in Thailand and the Philippines, it is not done by the parliament. Public participation is encouraged to design and make a decision on the constitutional amendments.
While another thing relating to whether the rule is contrary to the legislative power of a democratic system would have to be elaborated further. But definitely, two constitutional amendments have been made and tendencies that lead to legislative supremacy tu has ignored the power system is characterized by the formation of checks and balances. In fact, these systems become a feature of the establishment of a democratic system of rule. Then there are strong indications MPR - through the MPR Working Body, kususnya Ad Hoc Committee II - has failed to carry out the mandate to amend the constitution to create a system of democratic rule and format. If so, we should know what to do! rbedaan State And Government By: M. Karimuddin basic state and government are the two terms are almost the same, but much different. Some western thinkers tend to be the same understanding of the term, where the kings and dictators also equate the state and government. Francis king Louis XIV said: I am the State. On the other hand Adolph Hitler exclaimed "I was German. Whereas highly sensitive political science student in understanding the meaning of both. Countries are all unscrupulous people, while the government is a collection of people who are small. State and governmental differences:1. Country is the whole community is still inhabit certain areas and are entitled to sovereign in internal and external affairs. While the government is part of the state, could mean the government is to achieve the purpose of the State machinery.2. An eternal state of unity, where the government is temporary. However community engagement in the State can not be conquered by anyone, even if the State had been colonized. While the government may change at any time in the union, the birth of viable new parties then transformed the government.3. Is a sovereign state, sovereignty is the fundamental nature necessary for the State. While the government is not an attribute of sovereignty, he said his government is not sovereign. We admit that the government has the power over the State, but keep in mind the power granted by the State and its time is limited anyway.4. The characters are the same countries worldwide. Where community occupies a territory permanently, have the government and gain sovereignty. While the government has a different character, for example, different democratic system of government with a system of dictatorship, presidential system of government is much different from the parliamentary system of government.5. We have never heard or seen a demonstration of the people againstTheir sovereignty, if there is any fight for sovereignty from the occupation rose. While often launched an insurgency against the government by the people of the theme, and it often and very familiar season today.
Although the difference is clearly visible state and government, but the state and the government does not run without the support of each other. I mean logically is the State where the government as the weather was Adam.1. Mirriam Budiardjo, Fundamentals of Political Science, Scholastic, 1977.2.

Pancasila and Sustainability HomelandBy Siswono Yudo Husodo
STATE Indonesian nationality formed with very unique characteristics and specific. In contrast to Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Greece, which became a nation-state because of the language similarities. Or Australia, India, Sri Lanka, Singapore, which became the nation because of the similarity mainland. Or Japan, Korea, and other countries in the Middle East, which became the country because of racial equality.Indonesia became one of the nation state, although composed of many languages, ethnic, racial, and islands. It was realized due to the similarity of past history; similarity region for almost 500 years and 300 years of Sriwijaya and Majapahit kingdom equally colonized by the Dutch 350 years and 3.5 years by the Japanese.Country of nationality we also formed the great efforts of the founding fathers, who tirelessly in and out of jail strengthen the sense of Indonesian nationhood official Youth Pledge was born on October 28, 1928. Indonesian nation-state through the proclamation of independence was born August 17, 1945 and 1945 set by PPKI on August 18, 1945, which is the opening section contains Pancasila as the state. Pancasila is the sublimation of the worldview and cultural values that unite our diverse community, race, language, religion, island, became one nation, Indonesia.That is why, although the 1945 Constitution has been amended four times, this opening section remains unchanged, because if the change means to form a new state, not the proclaimed on August 17, 1945.
Paradigm functionSociologist Talcott Parsons in the book Social System states, if a society wants to exist and sustainable, there are four function paradigm (function paradigm) which should continue to be implemented by the community concerned. First, pattern maintenance, the ability to maintain cultural value system adopted because culture is deposition of human behavior. Culture that will change due to the transformation of the value of the former to the later, but still maintaining the values which he considers noble, because without it it will form a new society to another.Second, the ability of people to adapt to a rapidly changing world. History proves that many civilizations have been lost because people are not able to adapt to the changing world. Community that is able to adapt to change and take advantage of opportunities that arise will excel.Third, the integration function of the elements of a diverse society continuously forming an increasingly centripetal force that unites the community.Fourth, the public needs to have a goal or purpose with which Attainment from time to time as it continues to be improved by transforming the dynamics of the community and its leaders.
Fading ideology PancasilaA nation requires a Weltanschauung or philosophical foundation. On the basis of the Weltanschauung, drafted the vision, mission, and purpose of the state. Without it, the country moves like broken kites, without guidance.In the perspective of the nation-state, four-function paradigm that must continue to be implemented Parson Indonesian society in order to live and thrive, manifested systemic framework (crystallized) in the Pancasila is the Indonesian nation Weltanschauung.Lately, felt the prestige of Pancasila are declining. Pancasila can also be seen as a nation-state ideology of Indonesia. Mustafa Rejai stated in the book Political ideologies, ideologies that never dies, what happens is Emergence (appearance), decline (deterioration), and the resurgence of ideologies (revival of an ideology). Apparently, since the beginning of reform, is currently happening declining (setback) along with the increasing prestige of Pancasila ideology of liberalization and democratization of the world.Socialization Pancasila in the past, where the following upgrading and become certified in the promotion requirements, has made Pancasila rote, and not substantially manifest in the daily life of its people.
Reviving the ideology of PancasilaIn the book The Meaning of the 20th Century, Kenneth E Boulding stated, "Truth is recognized correctly by all the people is not an ideology that is worth fighting for. Truth that right is recognized by most people is the ideology that is worth fighting for".Pancasila as the national ideology in order to still have the spirit to fight, we need to accept Pancasila has not been received by all parties. World also seemed not convinced on the survival and progress of a nation called Indonesia.Pancasila needs to be socialized in order to be understood by the world as the philosophical foundation of the Indonesian nation in defending the existence and develop itself into a modern and prosperous nation.As a national ideology, he should strive to be accepted as true beyond the limits of our own nation. Certainly shape the ideological struggle at different times berbenturannya nationalism and imperialism, socialism and capitalism, and between democracy and totalitarianism. Pancasila as an ideology of success will be measured from the realization of rapid progress, high welfare, and the solid unity of the entire people of Indonesia.Looking ahead, our nation needs to venture into the U.S. as the nation that wants to spread the ideology of democracy all over the world.In his inaugural speech for his second term (2005-2009) on January 20, 2005, President George W. Bush said the policy is constantly looking for the American people and to support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture, with the ultimate goal ending world tyranny.Founding able to do it today because of the national ideology, the core democratic liberty (freedom), fraternity (brotherhood), and egality (equality), has managed to put the United States as the leading nation in the world. U.S. success in various areas of life not only legitimize his position as the country has been referred to and respected, but also put him as an inspiration and example of many nations.Only by achieving a developed nation condition, prosperous, and united Indonesia alone can be one of the world reference. That's when Pancasila potential to be accepted by other nations in the world. I would argue, it is a condition that might be happening that needs to be realized; become sacre our mission as a nation.Terpelajarlah duty to articulate the people's desire to move forward with the coloring of Pancasila which have sharp formulation in all fields to meet the challenges facing our state and nation. Conception and practice of Pancasila life must be realized in everyday life, especially the elite, the leaders, the leaders, entrepreneurs, and the lessons to be learned Indonesian society.
