Constitutional rights, civility and artifice

Nigel Edward Simmonds, Apollo-University Of Cambridge Repository, Apollo-University Of Cambridge Repository
The value of civility is grounded upon acceptance of the legitimacy of moral disagreement and the need for mutual respect and cooperation in the face of such disagreement. The distinction between rights and goods plays a fundamental role in the form of civility espoused by liberal society. Current models of constitutional rights and proportionality, in a variety of ways, erode that distinction and thereby place the liberal model of civility in jeopardy. KEYWORDS: Constitutional rights, proportionality, civility, commensurability, liberalism.
