Liberty Forum at the Online Library of Law and Liberty posted an essay this month by George Mason Professor Frank Buckley arguing that the ministerial form of executive government in parliamentary systems better protects liberty than does the presidential form of executive government in separation-of-power systems.

Dear Reader,

Your charitable support for First Things is urgently needed before July 1.

First Things is a proudly reader-supported enterprise. The gifts of readers like you— often of $50, $100, or $250—make articles like the one you just read possible.

This Spring Campaign—one of our two annual reader giving drives—comes at a pivotal season for America and the church. With your support, many more people will turn to First Things for thoughtful religious perspectives on pressing issues of politics, culture, and public life.

All thanks to you. Will you answer the call?
