Liberal democracy is generally understood to be a system of government in which people consent to their rulers, and rulers, in turn, are constitutionally constrained to respect individual rights. However, widely divergent views exist regarding the meaning of consent and individual rights, of the particular forms of government that are best suited to the preservation of popular rule and the protection of rights, and of the types and effectiveness of constitutional constraints within particular forms of government.
She stared at the ceiling of her tent, her body still humming with the aftermath of great sex. No regrets, she reminded herself, and, facing the music, got up, dressed, and left her tent.

Though there are varying versions of this view, it is rarely formulated in the way we propose—viz. It bears emphasizing, however, that the strong variant does not assume the identity of its constitutive elements, nor does it claim that they fuse into each other so that the one becomes indistinguishable from the other, and that one of these elements cannot be regarded as more important than the other. They can be regarded as conceptually related to each other, constituting libertas in a more general sense.

Этот враждебный мир заполняли рабочие мостки, фреоновые трубки и пропасть глубиной 136 футов, на дне которой располагались генераторы питания ТРАНСТЕКСТА… Чатрукьяну страшно не хотелось погружаться в этот мир, да и вставать на пути Стратмора было далеко не безопасно, но долг есть долг. Завтра они скажут мне спасибо, - подумал он, так и не решив, правильно ли поступает. Набрав полные легкие воздуха, Чатрукьян открыл металлический шкафчик старшего сотрудника лаборатории систем безопасности.
