Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Iraq and the Bloody Price of Lies

BY SELWYN DUKE Western civilization lied and people died. It lied, that is, to itself. I am referring to Iraq, but not to the hapless George W. Bush and the claim of WMDs’ existence, which wasn’t a lie at all. What is at issue here is more fundamental. It’s a lie that imbues Bushes, Clintons and Obamas, both the left and the right [...]

Individualism and the Common Good

Individualism and the Common Good

by Jonathan Dolhenty, Ph.D. One of the concepts which seems to present difficulties to individualists and libertarians is the concept of the "common good." This may be due to the emphasis which individualists and libertarians place on individual rights and liberty and may also reflect a concern about the contemporary attention paid by liberals [...]
