Abstract

I understand “the rule of law” to mean that a community’s law is generally respected, most importantly by its own public officials. That condition is widely regarded as a very good thing, and there is no doubt that the rule of law has its virtues. The law can protect our persons, secure our property, enforce our chosen arrangements, provide an authoritative settlement of disputes, create beneficial coordination, and enable us usefully to combine and deploy our resources.
