A Philosophy of Government
by Mark Moore
In a work that will remind some of a modern incarnation of The Anti-Federalist Papers, the author Mark Moore (formerly writing under the pen name "Achbani") makes a compelling case that the Founders of the United States intended a much more decentralized government than we now have, and that decentralization of government power is essential to maintaining liberty.
Localism posits thirteen doorways through which power is consolidated and liberty lost. Freedom, it says, cannot be sustained unless each of the fourteen are kept shut. Much of the book contains specific difficult, but necessary, measures to keep political power diffused and therefore in reach of the citizens.
One of the more intriguing aspects of the philosophy is its potential to unite limited-government conservatives and libertarians together against centralizers of all stripes. A blueprint forward.
