Why did classical republicans stress the need for moral education and homogeneity?
According to Aristotle, a classical republican philosopher, the purpose of government is to promote the common good. In order to do so, the citizens of a given area need to maintain civic virtue, be morally educated and maintain small homogeneous communities. Aristotle further defines how citizens are to become good and virtuous via the progression of nature, habit and reason. Moral education aids in the development of good habits and the manner in which one should reason. Accordingly, the government must maintain a small homogenous community so that the people will maintain similar interests and care for each other's wellbeing as to promote the common good.

How does a classical liberal system protect the rights of citizens?
In a classical liberal system of governance, the rights of citizens are protected in two fundamental ways. Most largely, it views the basic relationship of government and governed as consensual: government exists and acts only by consent of the governed. Additionally, and in numerous particular ways, it limits the privileges and powers of governing agencies, bodies, and officials, whether in terms of scope, time-limits, internal checks and balances, or other limitations.
