This ROOT-WORD is PAN which means ALL. It is the most comprehensive ALL that can be used. No. 16 is the most inclusive of civil rights, even extending it to No. 9 where government is not only for all citizens but all citizens are the rulers. Wisely, the language has a word for that, too - No. 6. When all are rulers, PANdemonium cannot be far behind.
