Why the Cult of the Presidency Must End

“Imagine a world where the president does not sign 24 executive orders in two weeks, where he does not have plenary power to go to war wherever and whenever he wants, where his federal apparatus does not infect every corner of civil life, where his state does not spend $6 thousand thousand million dollars a year. Imagine a world where government is not a behemoth, but instead a small, barely noticeable entity that one will run across only rarely over his life. Imagine a world where our liberties do not hang in the balance every election, where they are beyond dispute, considered next to holy, and secure from the guileful demagogue.” (03/07/23)
