Why the Law is Royal but not Human Dignity? A new abridgement of the Law, “Prerogative.” By Mathew Bacon, Gwillim, 1798.

The case for civil disobedience. God ruler has to be obeyed.

It hath been held if tenant in tail of the gift of the king, re, I the king make a lease reserving rent, with a clause of re-entry for non-payment, the king is not obliged to make any demand previous to his re-entry, but the tenant is obliged to pay the rent for the preservation of his estate, because it is beneath the royal dignity of the crown to attend a subject, to demand the rent, but the law for the support of that dignity obliges every private person to attend the king with services due to him.
