The state, imperfectly representing the will of the majority, necessarily claims dominion over the populace. "And where else will [Hume,] this degenerate son of science, this traitor to his fellow men, find the origin of just powers, if not in the majority of the society? Will it be in the minority? Or in an individual of that minority?" -- Thomas Jefferson to J. Cartwright, 1824. The Constitution is the American social contract. If you don't want to live by its terms, cash out and leave already. Denying its existence doesn't negate it.
