    The authority indeed comes out of its power. But it's legitimacy comes from the voters (note I say voters, not people, because we all know how delusional democracy actually is).
    Then, again, and most importantly, the authority determines it's legality as it has power to create law. Any sort of law it pleases. And to enforce it with (military) power it was given.

    'Human-Rightist' conception Law is placed above politics.
    Yeah, right. Strangely many politicians turn a blind eye on human trafficking and slavery.

    This is a philosophical topic: natural law vs. legal positivism. And of course that despite it the natural law is stomped over whenever the political ambitions require so. They cannot do it outright -cut the branch they're sitting on and they helped in creating- but here's how they do it:

    News: Oil discovered in let's say Iran and then Obama says: What's the situation with human rights in Iran? BAD! VERY BAD of course! It's always been and it is in many countries. Yet they care to bother only with the ones that got useful resources.

    Laws mean whatever the government want them to:

    Do you see what I see?
    Truth is an offense
    You silence for your confidence
    Do you hear what I hear?
    Doors are slamming shut
    Limit your imagination;
    Keep you where they must

    Do you feel what I feel?
    Bittering distress
    Who decides what you express?
    Do you take what I take?
    Endurance is the word
    Moving back instead of forward
    Seems to me absurd

    Doesn't matter what you see,
    Or into it what you read
    You can do it your own way,
    If it's done just how I say

    Independence limited
    Freedom of choices made for you, my friend
    Freedom of speech means words that they will bend
    Freedom with their exception

    Do you fear what I fear?
    Living property
    Truths to you are lies to me
    Do you choose what I choose?
    More alternatives
    Energy derives from both the plus and negative

    Do you need what I need?
    Boundaries overthrown
    Look inside;
    To each his own
    Do you trust what I trust?
    Me, myself, and I
    Penetrate the smoke screen,
    I see through the selfish lie

    Doesn't matter what you see,
    Or into it what you read
    You can do it your own way,
    If it's done just how I say

    Independence limited
    Freedom of choices made for you, my friend
    Freedom of speech means words that they will bend
    Freedom with their exception

    Do you know what I know?
    Your money and your wealth
    You silence just to hear yourself
    Do you want what I want?
    Desire not a thing
    I hunger after independence;
    Lengthen freedom's ring

    Doesn't matter what you see,
    Or into it what you read
    You can do it your own way,
    If it's done just how I say

    Independence limited
    Freedom of choices made for you, my friend
    Freedom of speech means words that they will bend
    Freedom no longer frees you

    Doesn't matter what you see,
    Or into it what you read
    You can do it your own way,
    If it's done just how I say
