I posted this for him - see top post on this page where he replied to me and ignored my question about this exact same paragraph.<quoted text>
We are talking about social contracts, not lawyer tools. Expand your mind a little, understand a little about political theory.
In political philosophy the social contract or political contractis a theory or model, originating during the Age of Enlightenment, that typically addresses the questions of the origin of society and the legitimacy of the authority of the state over the individual. Social contract arguments typically posit that individuals have consented, either explicitly or tacitly, to surrender some of their freedoms and submit to the authority of the ruler or magistrate (or to the decision of a majority), in exchange for protection of their remaining rights. The question of the relation between natural and legal rights, therefore, is often an aspect of social contract theory.
It might be too abstract for him to consider.
