Habermas's Discourse Ethics provides the most hospitable, democratically-oriented platform for considering individual, legal moral rights. This theory has social requirements that had to be met-namely, a robust educational system and an engaged public-and I briefly showed that Gutmann's democratic theory of education is the answer to these social requirements in order that human rights are representative of, democratically determined by, and secured for the people of the modern state. A system that may pragmatically work in the diverse modern state we share today. In order that this system proves effective, though, is a matter for the public to discuss and decide.
