in History, Philosophy of Freedom

… is from page 42 of Georgetown University law professor Randy Barnett’s brilliant 2016 book, Our Republican Constitution:

The Declaration stipulates that those who govern the people are supposed “to secure” their preexisting rights, not impose the will of a majority of the people on the minority.
