Explanation

Sometimes men into the power, leading a nation, feel like omnipotent. They act as infallibility.

for such reason, a nation and its constitution have the antibodies to protect itself from these men that sometimes are discomfiting and have benefits from a remedial process.

Can you please explain why it's remedial and not adaptable? I thought they were similar in meaning

Because when something goes wrong, because the human being is fallacious - even the wisest men might be wrong - the constitution put in action a balance to this.

So the constitution itself act as a remedy to the wrong decision.

Think for instance what is happening today in the US: a lot of debates are centered around the first amendment - it guarantees (among other things) the freedom of speech.

So when a president, the parliament or any other institutions to do something AGAINST the freedom of speech (by the way: this happen on a daily basis all around the world in every democracy) the constitution puts a remedy.

That is the sense of the last blank. For these reasons an adaptable is wrong. it is out of scope.
