A Quote by Jean Jacques Rousseau on behavior, citizenship, civil rights, equality, judgment, justice, laws, liberty, men, politics, reason, and rules

It is to law alone that men owe justice and liberty. It is this salutary organ, of the will of all which establishes in civil rights the natural equality between men. It is this celestial voice which dictates to each citizen the precepts of public reason, and teaches him to act according to the rules of his own judgment and not to behave inconsistently with himself. It is with this voice alone that political leaders should speak when. they command.
