    It is the will of the noblest among us to command well only themselves. 

    A Noble Sovereign is at Liberty to subject himself or herself to Virtuous Authority, in service to a Higher Purpose, without relinquishing his or her personal sovereignty.


     -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill

    Ahhh yes, a focused observation of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's doting patrons (obedient helots, serfs and slaves all). There is no greater enemy to said obedient patron than an individual sovereign that loves liberty, rights, natural law and justice. (If it is practical, easier or mandatory to obey, then all must obey  NOT)
