Just powers always come only from the consent of the governed.
It's only right that the community that they live among ought to determine the common good served by this couple's orderly, attractive, and healthful alternative to this new lawn-conformity standard, retroactively applied to them from "on high".
Who among these titled people would want such to be done to themselves, or their families? Who among the uniformed enforcers would apply their strength to make this happen if they knew it would likely happen to themselves by the same tyrants they trusted would favor them?
The community they live among MUST speak up and defend their neighbor's rights and honor here; or else acquiesce themselves to the same fate, eh?
Tis true among US too!
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it. - Patrick Henry
