"Orarchy means limited government―limited in powers and jurisdiction.
Get used to thinking in terms of Orarchy, not Democracy."―W. J. Sidis

Comment from reader: "I just read the front page of "The Orarch" and noticed Sidis's statement about granting to others all rights which you would have them
grant to you. I believe this idea is the thesis of "A Theory of Justice"
by John Rawls. He seems to use it as a social contract. It would seem
quite possible that this principle is one of those that Sidis discovered
but for which he received no credit.
