I was talking to someone the other day with a Master’s Degree. They had no idea what “sovereignty” is. Perfect! That sums up education as concisely as possible.
“The citizen cannot complain, because he has voluntarily submitted himself [consented] to such a form of government. He owes allegiance to the two departments, so to speak, and within their respective spheres must pay the penalties which each exacts for disobedience to its laws. In return, he can demand protection from each within its own jurisdiction.”
