Currently, we are stuck in an era where The People are the Source of the Law – as interpreted by the Right Sort, naturally, regardless of such nonsense as votes or referenda or opinion polls.
This will end, as these laws are worthless. The People are no fount of wisdom, and the Right Sort are usually worse.
After the end of the current political idolatry, the laws of God – where we actually get freedom, liberty, prosperity, and joy – are going to come to the forefront.
This is what Godly men are to push for!
