  • The Moral Incompetence of Anti-Corruption Experts.Mario I. Juarez-Garcia - 2021 - Res Publica 27 (4):537-557.

Decision-making power within them is disaggregated across multiple sites. This rules out one major justification for ideal theory. On this influential view, the ideal furnishes a blueprint of the morally perfect society that we should strive to realise. This justification is not viable in consolidated liberal democracies because their states lack an Archimedean point from which the (...)
