S4E2 – Restraining the Tyranny of the Majority

September 20, 2023

Today I continue looking at Alexis de Tocqueville’s work Democracy in America, written in the 1830s. He saw Americans as having an inordinate love of the power of the majority. Yet even so, liberty remained strong in the land. How was that possible? What was restraining the power of the majority in the United States? Tocqueville provides the answer to that by highlighting three things that preserve liberty: demographic/geographic factors, federalism/decentralization, and the Christian faith.

As always, if you have any law/government related questions, feel free to email me at, and I will be happy to address them on the program. Thank you and God bless!
