The state is "a community of well-being in families and aggregations of families for the sake of a perfect and self-sufficing life." The legislator is a craftsman whose material is society and whose aim is the good life.

Gradesaver's summary has a wealth of information available; it is linked below:


"The basis of a democratic state is liberty; which, according to the common ... that in which, not the law, but the multitude, have the supreme power."
