1. The rule of law requires the government to exercise its power in accordance with well-established and clearly written rules, regulations, and legal principles. A distinction is sometimes drawn between power, will, and force, on the one hand, and law, on the other. When a government official acts pursuant to an express provision of a written law, he acts within the rule of law.

The rule of law requires that government impose liability only insofar as the law will allow. Government exceeds its authority when a person is held to answer for an act that was l...

The plurality of these valuesseems to indicate that there are multiple ways in which social andpolitical systems can be evaluated, and these do not necessarily fittidily together. Some legal philosophers (e.g., Raz 1977) insist, as amatter of analytic clarity, that the Rule of Law in particular must bedistinguished from democracy, human rights, and social justice. Theyconfine the focus of the Rule of Law to formal and procedural aspectsof governmental institutions, without regard to the content of thepolicies they implement. But the point is controversial. As we shallsee, some substantive accounts have been developed, which amount ineffect to the integration of the Rule of Law with some of these otherideals.

1. No country can maintain a rule of law society if its people do not respect the laws. Everyone must make a commitment to respect laws, legal authorities, legal signage and signals, and courts. Imagine if everyone in your community decided that they did not want to be bothered by traffic laws and signals, for example. The streets in your community would quickly become a chaotic and less safe place. Police officers might be overwhelmed trying to help the situation, or ignored altogether. The rule of law functions because most of us agree that it is important to follow laws every day. As a result, we teach about law in schools, talk about law, enjoy numerous courtroom dramas, and, accept law as a part of American culture. As Danish scholar Helle Porsdam has said, “Americans practically think and breathe in legal terms.”
