    Rawls's Decent Peoples and the Democratic Peace Thesis.Walter Riker - 2004 - Social Philosophy Today 20:137-153.
    In The Law of Peoples, Rawls defends the stability of his proposed international order with the democratic peace thesis.

    Toward Limits on Diversity in Press Freedom.Walter J. Riker - 2014 - Philosophy in the Contemporary World 21 (2):1-13.
    Some argue that at least some non-liberal, non-democratic societies deserve fiill and good standing in the international community. These arguments imply that some divergence in understanding the role of the press is also justified and should be tolerated. But what are the limits of diversity here? I begin to find these limits by considering John Rawls's "decent" societies in the context of Amartya Sen's work on famine. Sen claims that a free press plays an important role in famine prevention. After (...)
