The common law courts, government agencies, and Parliament have developed a wide variety of techniques for controlling the ermously diverse activities of twenty-first century government. The result was a practical reform that protected civil liberties, on the basis of a very conservative understanding of the constitution, according to which public authorities are limited by law, but have powers that are not specified by law. So the idea of sovereignty is a coherent idea, and sovereignty is a potentially valuable feature of states in international law.

Because all legal systems attain the ideal of the rule of law to some extent, that need for evaluative judgment constitutes a necessary connection between law and morality.

But the requirements of the rule of law create a standing risk that the law will not adequately recognize the autonomy of its subjects, because of its artificial techniques for controlling its own jurisdiction and for controlling the scope of its own directives.

Is there a right answer to every legal dispute?

And proportionality reasoning involves pathologies, by which I mean structured tendencies toward misconceived decisions. Sovereignty is to be understood as internal power and external freedom that are complete for the purposes of a good state. Constitutional theory has been institutionalized in distinctive ways in Canada.
