In fact the Federalist Papers say, “It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices [checks and balances] should be necessary to control the abuses of government. But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature?” (Madison Federalist Papers) Then aligning right next to that statement is the Constitution which says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States...The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America...The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish” (Madison Constitution).

The current international scenario is dynamic in nature, full of interstate interactions and full of subjects (if you can call them subjects under traditional international law) that are not states. After the Peace of Westphalia —and even prior to that— the “sovereignty” of states has been the driving force of most international relations; consequently, the states were considered to be the only subjects of intentional law disregarding individuals as subjects of international law. Another major issue of international law that derives form the notion of state sovereignty is law enforcement; because there is nothing above state sovereignty, and states should be regarded as the only subjects of international law, enforcement of treaties becomes
While in Malaysia, constitutional supremacy is applied.
