Sovereignty & autonomy

Sovereignty differs from autonomy in that autonomy is a measure of power over one's own creative gifts while sovereignty is a measure of power over the collective's creative gifts. That's why sovereignty tends to be defined in terms of the disposition of the land whereas autonomy tends to be exercised in terms of the manner and degree of income taxation. 
Land is a gift of God's grace while income tends to be experienced as a gift of personal or local creativity.
