This is based on the doctrine that the people in the American republic (the Constitution does not use the word "democracy") are sovereigns and "All power is inherent in the people " All power The jury is composed of a representative group of equal sovereigns - intended to be large enough to be diverse, but small enough to be operable, and as sovereigns, they retain, inherently, all power.
Jurors rarely know this, which permits judges to turn them into pawns. Judges like it when jurors are docile. It may look like a jury, but it doesn't smell like a jury, it doesn't talk like a jury, so it's not a jury at all. But if the panel is able to rise up and act on conscience in the face of bad laws, it turns itself into a jury, and forces the government to hang its head.
But to declare the people "sovereign" means nothing unless we, the people, implement that declaration.
Thus I dedicate this book to freedom and to you in your role as juror and guarantor of freedom.
