Dr Rupert Read.
In his talk for SLRG/RESOLVE Dr Rupert Read argues that future people are the most obvious case of such people. He presents therefore a broadly Habermasian case for powerful guardians for future people, not only to act so as to give future people standing in the political system, but, and more importantly, to take the formal place occupied in our current political system by the royal assent, and make something meaningful and major out of it: to give future people a real veto (as our kings and queens used to have) over legislation.
