From The Road To Serfdom, by F. A. Hayek, 1944, Fiftieth Anniversary Edition, 1994, The University of Chicago Press.

The idea that there is no limit to the power of the legislator is in part a result of popular sovereignty and democratic government.

But this is completely to misconceive the meaning of the Rule of Law.
