"Sovereignty" is the authority to govern or rule a nation or group of people. Expanded definition "Sovereignty is the exclusive right to exercise supreme political (e.g. legislative, judicial, and/or executive) authority over a geographic region, group of people, or oneself." (from the Latin superanus, supremacy) In a democacy, sovereignty is considered to reside with the individual citizens. Commentary on the Rights of ManFirstly, man does not have "rights" but instead one right, the "birthright", to have everything. If plurality of rights appears that really means "privileges", the privilege of use licences. Privilege in the situation does not mean "privilege of the rich". Sovereignty means "soul reign" where if man has an eternal soul, it reigns within him and should in physical life. However, we have many people and many sovereigns may seem a problem. Thus leadership appears amongst sovereigns. It is necessary for order. However, today we do not have sovereignty in the market place as the Polity forgot in history how to bestow or grant it. Therefore, people are sovereign not land or things. We misinterpret many subjects in life. Land can have solidarity, but not sovereignty. The latter is exclusively man's. To grant sovereignty is a simple process of a pure trust Exchangor/Grantor granting it to any human that desires it. Once sovereign, one is a legal individual and not subject to anyone or anything unless he or she so chooses. "As of grace by the sovereign himself (agbesh)" (Blackstone's Commentaries 242 - Corpus Juris Secundum) == ==
