The Second Amendment in the Light of American Republicanism

Today, the Second Amendment Is Largely Unwelcome

JUNE 01, 1999 by JOSEPH R. STROMBERG

The "transforming" ideology of America's revolutionary period saw the chief conflict in society as one between liberty and power. That ideology synthesized themes from several sources.[1] Given the differing origins and jumping-off points of classical liberalism and classical republicanism (the two most important elements), the American "synthesis" might be expected to undergo some unraveling when up against the harder problems of political life.

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
