Yeah, and its a law you cannot enforce upon us people!
They cannot enforce the laws they made..
You cannot vandalize private property! It's against the law!
They had no power to raise troops..
Without having the power to tax, companies and shops will crash and the people will have no place to buy essentials. Also, they won't be able to pay to protect the people and fight wars.
Since they cannot enforce the laws they make, the people will become more rebellious. These rebellious acts will open doors for those who have not disobeyed will become encouraged, leading to an outbreak of rebellious acts.
Since government cannot raise their own troops, they may not be able to defend against war in time and the people will be in great danger.
