All strong people in the world adopt this course. Everywhere wars are fought and millions of people are killed. The consequences is not the progress of the nation but the decline...It brings disaster to both belligerents...Similarly, no State is possible without two entities, the rulers and the ruled. You are our sovereign, our Government, only so long as we consider ourselves your subjects. When we are not subjects, you are not the sovereign either...
