And The Truth Shall Set You Free!

Or enslave you to the state.

From Prof. Deneen on the Anti-Federalists, part one:


That the very functions of State governments that they deemed to be too uninteresting for the national government – such as agriculture and civil justice – would in fact be eventually accrued to the center, and that a train of state governors would leave their posts to join a national administration of those sorts of activities would someday become the norm, might not have been foreseen by the Framers, but is not out of keeping with the general direction and trajectory of the regime that they designed.

It’s not that the wrong people get into government. Centralization is inherent in our Constitution. Hamilton was a nefarious s.o.b.
