This chapter explores how those who have internalized the Rule Consequentialist ideal code will respond to disagreement and uncertainty. The ensuing discussion reinforces the Rule Consequentialist commitment to liberty and democracy, develops a new set of arguments for majoritarian democracy over entrenched constitutions, and shows how Rule Consequentialism responds to the threat of annihilation.

Keywords:   disagreement, uncertainty, democracy, majoritarianism, Rawls, constitution, progress, annihilation, Rule Consequentialism
