Jefferson and the Origin of Law

“To render these proceedings still more criminal against our laws, instead of subjecting the military to the civil powers, his majesty has expressly made the civil subordinate to the military.  But can his majesty thus put down all law under his feet?  Can he erect a power superior to that which erected himself?  He has done it indeed by force; but let him remember that force cannot give right.”
