65.4

it is a proven fact that the intellect of a majority is always inferior to the individual’s
so any force that bases its legitimacy on quantified backing will inevitably violate individual sovereignty

take how we consent to be ‘governed’ by the result of a count, in the process
failing to acknowledge that no man secures liberty simply because he can cast a vote; voting and rights having no real measurable relation

this can be rightly understood when one realises that a man who truly has a right
can never be deprived of it by the mere votes of other men.
