Question details

Hayek acknowledges that just having laws will not, on their own, effectively limit the government—pieces of paper have no power. Thus, he says that the rule of law “will be effectively only in so far as the legislator feels bound by it. In a democracy this means that it will not prevail unless it forms a part of the moral tradition of the community, a common ideal shared and unquestioningly accepted by the majority.” What is the role, then, of public opinion in grounding the rule of law? Give examples, either positive or negative, of how public opinion must undergird the rule of law.
