Limited Powers?

“What a government of limited powers needs, at the beginning and forever, is
some means of satisfying the people that it has taken all steps humanly
possible to stay within its powers. That is the condition of its legitimacy,
and its legitimacy, in the long run, is the condition of its life.”
– Charles L. Black, Jr.
