Procedural Normative Theory Applied to Political Power

If the procedural theory of normative economics is applied to political power, mass chaos (or efficiency accrued to great evil) ensues. To keep the procedural theory and an anti-Hitler normative theory of political power, I see only two options:

  1. Economic power is more sacred, more morally inviolable, than political power.
  2. The rights of political power are less transferable (or exchangeable) than the economic power manifested in economic assets. You can sell almost any of your possessions, but you cannot sell your vote, for example.

So which is it, and why?
