The modern state governed by the rule of law shall be designed according to this idea, by enshrining fundamental rights and principles as transcending ordinary laws, elaborating human dignity in substantive fundamental rights by adopting fundamental rights in constitutions and human rights documents, and institutionalizing legality, which includes equality to the law, consistency, predictability and the realization of substantive goals.
