“what is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature?”
Publius, The Federalist No. 51
The Shrink the Government blog is part of The James Madison Project. The blog uses a psychological framework, placing a spotlight on the various stakeholders involved in the political environment. Where possible, the blog will also attempt to reframe issues into challenges that can be debated, using facts that are verifiable to find effective solutions. The content will address timely issues as well as more conceptual topics. We invite anyone who shares our vision and mission to take part in suggesting topics, posing questions, writing posts, and most importantly, contributing to the conversation. With so much at stake for our nation, it’s time to stop kvetching and start acting.
