Sir John Graham Lecture 2012 | Can the Ruler Truly Be a Servant?
The paradox of constitutional government
Democracy is a remarkable constitutional idea. With the New Zealand constitution up for review, it is a good time to be asking questions about the way we want it to work.
Internationally acclaimed legal and political philosopher Professor Robert George has spent many years addressing these questions. He addresses how constitutional government can serve the cause of freedom-and the common good-without becoming a mortal threat to freedom and the common good.
