…nota bene…

For legislature, as was before observed, is the greatest act of superiority that can be exercised by one being over another. Wherefore it is requisite to the very essence of a law, that it be made by the supreme power. Sovereignty and legislature are indeed convertible terms; one cannot subsist without the other… The only true and natural foundations of society are the wants and the fears of individuals.


Commentaries on the Laws of England, William Blackstone, 1758.
