Its been a boring morning in work and i got thinking about this. Does sovereignty lie within the lines and label given to an area on a map or to the people? A government, as i understand it, is to act the will and in the best interests of the people. So if a dictatorship is formed this link of responsibility to the people is severed, the government has been stolen from the people. No matter how it is dressed up it may be with ministers of education or transport can it be classed as a proper sovereign government? Therefore can humanitarian intervention, political or military, be seen as an act against state sovereignty or in the interest of the sovereignty of the people?
