Cross posted from the Pennsylvania Tenth Amendment Center.
There is a point that I think I’ve been trying to get to for much of the time that I’ve been working with the Tenth Amendment Center. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ve done a very good job at getting there. I’ve written a few articles that skirted past it and danced around it, but I kept missing this particular target. It’s something that we probably all know, but maybe we don’t all know that we know it.
I got close to this idea it in The Individual and the Tenth, where I talked about the role of the individual in resisting the federal government during the “Whiskey Rebellion”. Apparently, though, I didn’t really have things clear enough in my own mind at the time, because I only got part way there. It came closer to the surface some time last year, when I drew up this diagram, intended to depict the proper Constitutional balance of power.Details
