Speculation: There has been a shift away from favoring constitutional (legal) foundations of government towards a "Confucian" view (and maybe mix in a little Plato, Rousseau, Yeats and Rawls).

It is the idea that the "best" people will make the "correct" decisions if we could but give them the power.
