Best Answer

This comes from the Ancient Roman Twelve Tables of Law, one of the first attempts in Rome to establish a code of law that gave the common people (Plebeians) some rights. Previously, only the Patricians (upper class) had decision-making power and controlled the legal system. In this quote, at the end of the code, it basically says that whatever the majority of the common people have agreed upon up to this point, it shall be considered the law. The quote implies that at some point, things may change; but for now, whatever the law has been up to that time, it remains binding on everyone.
