As in the presence of the master, the servants are equal, and without any honour at all; so are the subjects, in the presence of the sovereign. This is more than Consent, or Concord; it is a real Unitie of them all, in one and the same Person, made by Covenant of every man with every man, in such a manner, as if every man should say to every man, I Authorize and give up my Right of Governing my selfe, to this Man.
