Contexts with "compulsion"

In truth, a man who renders everyone their due because he fears the gallows, acts under the sway and compulsion of others, and cannot be called just. But a man who does the same from a knowledge of the true reason for laws and their necessity, acts from a firm purpose and of his own accord, and is therefore properly called just. Il est bien vrai que celui qui rend à chacun le sien par crainte du gibet agit par le commandement d'autrui et est contraint par le mal qu'il redoute ; on ne peut pas dire qu'il soit juste : mais celui qui rend à chacun le sien parce qu'il connaît la vraie raison des lois et leur nécessité agit en constant accord avec lui-même et par son propre décret, non par le décret d'autrui ; il mérite donc d'être appelé juste.
