~ Tenth Principle ~

GOVERNMENT IS OUR SERVANT, NOT OUR MASTER.

Government is responsible to the electorate.  Government is not the master of the electorate.  We do not receive our rights from govern­ment; but we constitute government to regulate our existing rights. Thus, politically speaking, our governments answer to us.  They are responsible to us, accountable to us, electable by us, and remov­able by us, at all times according to law.

Socialist planning and Marxism are inconsistent with self-government and with liberty, and thus they are contrary to British Parliamentary democracy.  Being therefore unconstitutional, these notions cannot and will not be given effect in Canada.
