The to cause mischief. The sovereign will not

The coexistence of equal citizens cannot be established when the laws do not equally apply to each individual.

Yes, citizens do get to vote but only during a popular assembly which deals with issues the government deems important in regards to the citizens. What the citizens do vote on, is not whether
