URIBE ARZATE, Enrique. Constitutional state and social fragmentation: the aporía of the 21st century. Cuest. Const. [online]. 2019, n.41, pp.249-275.  Epub 22-Abr-2020. ISSN 1405-9193.

The current crisis of the State is evident in the enormous challenges it faces inside and outside its borders; within is unable to provide the basic needs of the inhabitants; outside, the international organizations and its powers, nullify their capability of decision. In spite of the serious crisis faced by the Rule of Law or Legislative State, the change of paradigm towards the “Constitutional State”, implies that the political organization must be capable of guaranteeing the rights of the inhabitants and put efficient limits to the abuse of public power. The status quo of societies, shows an insurmountable aporia: The State has the greatest theoretical development; however, in the today´s life, its inability to guarantee security and justice for the inhabitants is evident. Thus, the Fractured State, or Failed State as it has also been called, makes the welfare and any other elementary aspiration of the inhabitants unviable.
