And therefore, however acquired, it becomes in him absolutely hereditary, unless by the rules of the limitation it is otherwise ordered and determined. During the early Roman Republicaccording to Livy, the plebeians seceded from the city of Rome, isolating themselves on the Sacred Mount or the Aventine. The social metaphor translated easily into the political world.
