“It is a painful twist of irony, that, in the name of “democracy,” big government is attacking civil society and capitalism, and thus making society less democratic. The actions of big government are antithetical to actually representing the people. Tocquevillian democracy gives individuals their communal voice, while Misesian democracy gives them their economic voice. It is democratic despotism that silences the voice of the people.
To restore American democracy, we must free our communities and our markets.”
