The term „welfare state” seems to have been reduced to a simple formula of „state and welfare” in the political narratives: the state (government) secures welfare, ensures, provides, attends, etc., regardless of the political system and rule of law („lybian welfare state” of Kadafi, „premature welfare state” of János Kádár). So it is worth preferring the term „social rule of law”(„Sozialrechtstaat”) where the rule of law, the legal certainty and the social rights defended by constitution and constitutional courts are cornerstones. In contrast, welfare states (Wohlfahrtsstaaten) without rule of law are guided by political paternalism: social rights are subordianted by the will, goals and policies of the paternalist state, and the main sources of legitimacy are relative welfare, social security and nannying character of government. Since the democratic transformation (regime change) the political paternalism as socialist heritage has been more and more pervading the governmental practices and the party competition: producing abnormal policy projects and „promise tsunami” and eroding the legal culture among elite groups and average citizens.
