I thought we were sovereign? Then why do we sovereigns need rules?

Sovereignty is also subject to certain rules, otherwise we are subject to arbitrariness. So that not everyone interprets their truth, we have chosen the highest moral values as a guideline, like a lighthouse on the coast for orientation. These rules as reference points are important to know what is valid for a legal system. Sovereignty for the benefit of all cannot be based on lawlessness. Hence the text that has been established.
