ABSTRACT. Rawls considers the conflict between the value of appealing to the "whole truth" and the political values which are realized only when we do not appeal to the whole truth. What democracy is ultimately about is not majority rule but political equality, which in turn is based on the more fundamental idea of the citizen as a moral person with the capacities necessary for an autonomous life and fair social cooperation.
