Peloncillo MountainsBroken Fence — Computer Art by kenne

“Society is indeed a contract. Subordinate contracts for objects of
mere occasional interest may be dissolved at pleasure – but the
state ought not to be considered as nothing better than a
partnership agreement in a trade of pepper and coffee, calico, or
tobacco, or some other such low concern, to be taken up for a little
temporary interest, and to be dissolved by the fancy of the parties.
It is to be looked on with other reverence because it is not a
partnership in things subservient only to the gross animal
existence of a temporary and perishable nature.”

— Edmund Burke
