problem. You are stuck with abstract entities and do not look at reality. Rational people will use the power of uniform laws within defined territory to subdue irrational people (criminals.) Rational people from different territories will create common laws to handle cross-border violations by criminals and those avoiding bankruptcy procedures.
If majority of intellectuals observe rational morality, peer pressure would be enough to keep the minority of religious, socialist and other collectivist in line. It is all about the majority (majority of intellectuals.) No laws or constitution can chain down majority for long. If the majority is no longer rational, free society cannot work.
