"Truly" loads the question and makes the proposition meaningless.
"sovereign and independent" is a classification with some meaning."
Original here: "classification without real meaning." That "real" also
loads the question and is meaningless. "Truly," "essential," "real" as
modifiers are quite frequently symptoms of a metaphysician at work.
