What is a constitutional democracy?
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.
