From GabbyPress: Equal Rights For All. Special Privileges For None.: Re-Examining the Agrarian Arguments Against A Centralized American Government



The purpose of this book is to start over in American history, at the point of the anti-federalist arguments, and re-examine the Populist’s legacy of fair political participation, and to explore the question of the relationship between the pursuit of individual self interest, free market economics, and the constitutional public purpose. The book’s main argument is that the anti-federalist arguments would have been a better pathway to preserve individual freedom than Madison’s arrangement of rules of procedure.
