    The rule of law is an essential principle in the nation but not nearly as important as the idea of majority rule. The rule of law is the most important principle in the nation where votes of the majority determine the laws. The rule of the majority with protection for the minority's rights is essential for preserving the liberties of all. The rule of the majority is the only principle on which this nation should run in order to protect democracy.

    B. Thomas Jefferson is arguing how government can be abused and should be guided by the whole of society instead of a select group. He's typically arguing against a monarchy, as England still approved of at the time.
