    I think this question is quite a potent one. The rule of law is quite a contentious issue and indeed it depends on who you ask whether the "rule of law" actually exists. The two being the rule of law, or rule by law. [Natural law vs Legal Positivism]

    In terms of a liberal perspective; you would have to come to terms where you sit within the band, and then push towards a more liberal view point.

    The end of the day, with a question such as that, there are no right answers, only a good argument.

    Perhaps look back in time and assess the position at the time, and then where we are today, and where you think we should be in the future. Because, the conception of the rule of law will depend on who is looking at it.
