the authorities are the people. A republic is government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Everybody is equal. If everybody is equal nobody can tell you what to do unless you are infringing on the rights of someone else.
"at the Revolution, the sovereignty devolved on the people [the owners], and they are truly the sovereigns of the country, but they are sovereigns without subjects, … and have none to govern but themselves [self-government]; the citizens of America [corporations or people with the status of “citizen”] are equal as fellow citizens, and as joint tenants [by their consent to be governed through corporate charters or private contracts] in the sovereignty." -- Chisholm v. Georgia 2 U.S. (1973)
There are many other case cites that reference the FACT that you, as one of the people in America are a King or Queen. You have no subjects but you enjoy all the rights of the King before the revolution.
