A constitutional democracy is a government under law in which

coalition and majority rule is balanced by minority and individual

rights, and in which most rights are balanced by responsibilities -

including the responsibility of each citizen to study the history

of constitutional government in order to illuminate it in ways that

no definition ever can … and in order, thereby, to allow it to

evolve further in light of ancient wisdoms and the needs of our

evolving global civilization.
