I've been giving some thought to the premise of a "social contract." As I understand it, it goes like this:
I'm born in this country and by that involuntary act I'm given "citizenship." Citizenship allows me to vote on issues and people, which then become governing factors in my life, whether or not I agree. The "social contract," to which I never put my signature, binds me to accept whatever the majority decides.
Those who favor the premise say that chaos and debauchery will reign without it. Those like me, who have some reservations, think that mob rule is mob rule whether or not the mob believes it is in the right.
