Citing Locke directly, American political scientist Jack Goldsmith discusses the mobilisation of Lockean theory during post 9-11 contemporary policy debate during the Bush administration of the early 21st century. Such declarations of crisis powers also operate in the ambiguous space between the legal and the extra-legal, and were central to most of the subsequent emergent contemporary debate and literature on the ‘legality’ of extra-legal powers. In conclusion, although Locke makes an effort in order to charge the legislature with some degree of authority over that of the executive upon the practice and enforcement of prerogative powers, the extent to which this theory provides and equal share in the scope of power between such bodies is widely contested. Within the boundaries that Locke sets for the use of executive prerogative, the extent that Locke’s model provides exacting requirement of single-agent executives who act in the contrary or absence of the letter of the law leaves such a gap for tyrannous actions in the event of the emergence of a power vacuum where normative law does not hold authority. Therefore, although this theory is a useful lens through which to view the dilemmas and debates of contemporary crisis governance, Locke’s theory of prerogative is not a solution to the concerns or critiques of prerogative powers, namely the resulting imbalance of power between the executive and the legislative.>GET ANSWER
