The American Republic and Its Relevancy in the 21st Century

Published by TSrInstitute
Far too often we hear contemporary political voices invoking America's founders and the Founding Era to support their rhetoric. An investigation into the original source material of the founders, along with the political philosophers who influenced them, reveals a different vision for America. This paper serves as a brief introduction to small-r republicanism, the original framework for America's governance, including equality, liberty, sovereignty, civic engagement and more. This paper also considers why America devolved from a democratic republic to a mere democracy, and how a republic's political framework continues to hold potential for addressing many of the social, political and economic issues of our modern, complex society.
