Prompt: Popular Sovereignty
Popular sovereignty means that the power of the government comes from the people. The idea of popular sovereignty is that people are best ruled by the rules they agree to follow, and that the law is right when people agree to it.
What do you think of popular sovereignty? What are its advantages? What are its disadvantages? In your opinion, why is popular sovereignty a core democratic value? Please use examples to back up your opinion.
This is not purely an opinion paper; I need examples and references for your arguments. And make sure to include your sources!
