Jefferson Perfects Locke on theoretical source of sovereignty

“What country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the right of resistance?  Let them take arms. . . For the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

4d
