Abstract

In a republic, a constitution, necessarily stated in general, universal terms, is supposed to protect the substantive and procedural rights of minorities against possible assaults by majorities. Yet local conditions vary, and in a federal system, where different levels of government overlap and interact, different local majorities of citizens, and judges who owe their appointments to local influence, will make varying decisions.
