Hi All,


Just going through module 1 material, there are some statements that make me question what I had grown to know of law itself.

In particular, on page 11 (you will see the page number in the url address bar), the paragraph 

"According the English philosopher John Austin, law is the command from an uncommanded commander. A command is a desire or intention that is supported by threat of punishment if disobeyed. The uncommanded commander is the sovereign."


From my previous learnings, a person does not give up their own sovereign without first consenting to giving it up. Do I have this wrong?

Can anyone help me out on this query?
