"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

Sovereign Immunity is Over with JASTA

The doctrine of absolute sovereign immunity is irrational. It is therefore baseless. The real overarching issue is imperialism and geopolitics. The sovereignty of Saudi Arabia, for instance, is a fiction concocted for the interests above and behind control of oil resources. Wars of aggression to expand such control are imperialistic. The issue of the human right to procure freedom from this control in order to provide advancement of potential future well being of citizenry overrules the system of supposed "noblesse oblige" whatever permutation that might take.

The United States Constitution in essence already ended sovereign immunity by replacing it with a principle first and foremost of promotion of the future welfare of its citizens.It is that principle which is sovereign and relegates all other claim subordinate to it.
