After a bitter and divisive election, Democrats have regained the presidency and widened their control of Congress. Now they are making the usual political victorsâ€™ calls for unity. But unfortunately, Americansâ€™ often diametrically opposed preferences for what they want government to do guarantees disunity under our current approach to governance.
Opposing desires (you want â€œAâ€ but I want â€œnot Aâ€) mean that no national approach or plan can form the basis of unity. Instead, only returning to our Constitutionâ€™s forgotten federalism, especially the 10th Amendment, can reconcile them with national unity.Details
