But the Constitution is pretty darn close. America became the greatest nation in history thanks to the genius of our Constitution.
Anyone who thinks the Articles of Confederation could have prevented our current situation is delusional. A written document on it's own can do nothing to prevent tyranny...as a wise man once said, the strength of the Constitution lies in the will of the people to defend it. Also, I recommend looking up the criticisms many of the Founders, such as Washington, made towards the Articles.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien
