Most absolutists mitigate this doctrine of non-resistance in cases where the monarch alienates his kingdom or sets about destroying his subjects. Then, as William Barclay puts it, and Locke quotes with approval, the people may defend itself (without injuring the king), usually through its representative body. Or, as Grotius and Pufendorf concede, an individual may defend himself against direct attack by a murderous tyrant. The main argument for alienation in its pure or mitigated form is that if sovereignty is shared by monarch and parliament (or estates), or if the people do not renounce their (or its) right to judge when it is a situation of self-defence, then, given human partiality, this will lead to disagreement, dissension, tumults, and so to civil war.
