Example text

Afghanistan is one such society, but it is by no means alone. ‘Failed states’ are common and, as thinkers from Thomas Hobbes onwards have warned us, they are terrible places to be. Again, and obviously, the law does not rule in a failed state. Conversely, a state in which the law can plausibly be said to rule is highly unlikely to have failed. In between all-powerful and powerless states, there are many available pathological permutations where states have power enough to do ill but are too weak to do good.

Conversely, a state in which the law can plausibly be said to rule is highly unlikely to have failed. In between all-powerful and powerless states, there are many available pathological permutations where states have power enough to do ill but are too weak to do good. Thus, for example, Timothy Snyder has recently written of Ukraine: The fundamental question here . . is the establishment of the rule of law. Gogol identified the problem in his comic play, The Government Inspector: the state is too weak to be predictable, but strong enough to be arbitrary.

The latter wields ‘unlimited violence unchecked by any legal guarantees’ over other classes, races, or everyone in other domains (such as politics). In such orders, the ‘prerogative state’ has the final word, though it might often find it useful to allow the normative state to operate routinely in particular areas of life. Nazi Germany was Fraenkel’s example; South Africa under apartheid a more recent one. These are all examples where laws might be hard to avoid, but the rule of law is hard to find.
