First Week of May-The Rule of Law

With the turmoil in the Middle East, where citizens of various nations are demanding freedom, it is important to remember “The Rule of Law.” Any government that follows follows the rule of law has a high likelihood of succeeding.  Any government that does not will fail.

The Rule of Law

The rule of law does not have a precise definition, and its meaning can vary between different nations and legal traditions. Generally, however, it can be understood as a legal-political regime under which the law restrains the government by promoting certain liberties and creating order and predictability regarding how a country functions.  In the most basic sense, the rule of law is a system that attempts to protect the rights of citizens from arbitrary and abusive use of government power.
