  • Lack a settled and known law
  • An impartial judge
  • Sufficient power to force others to conform to
    the law of nature

    nature and form a government to protect their
    property, life and liberty.

    authority, . . . The people have the right to act
    as supreme . . And place it in a new form, or new
    hands, as they think is good.
