Do we have a moral obligation to obey the law? Can the infringement of rights be justified? Do norms of political accountability inform our understanding of the constitution? These questions are confronted every day, in commuting to work, in evaluating hate speech against free expression, and in judging how far the opposition can go in resisting a government majority.
