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.

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.

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. But when a government official acts without the imprimatur of any law, he or she does so by the sheer force of personal will and power. Under the rule of law, no person may be prosecuted for an act that is not punishable by 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...

1. The Rule of Law is one ideal in an array of values that dominatesliberal political morality: others include democracy, human rights,social justice, and economic freedom. 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.
