Consent of the governed

The larger the police force, the less you need the consent of the majority, and the easier it is to go with minority rule.

Points along the axis of consent are agreement, deference, objection, and opposition. The ship of state floats in a sea of struggle. The point of the ship is to keep the water out. If it doesn't do that, it has no point.
