<< Not authority, responsibility. The authorities in ST got their authority
because they were responsible. It's a meritocracy and they got their
places the old fashioned way, by earning them. Every character in the book
who speaks with any authority also speaks from a position of terrifying
responsibility, which they invariably take very seriously.
Good proof of this is how the voting is set up. To be able to vote, you have
to take on the responsibility and serve a term of service. This shows that
you truly understand the hard work your founding fathers went through to give
you this liberty. Any moron can vote; it takes hard work to figure out which
is the right person to be in office.
