Exit Left

Chapter 5 focuses on the risks of this economic model of republicanism. If escalating state efforts to counter private power with public power will at some point increase rather than decrease total domination, then republicans will have to compare the evils of private versus public domination at the relevant legislative and policy margins. They will disagree with each other about the required tradeoffs, however, due to differing assessments of the nature and extent of private domination, the efficacy of state responses to it, and the possibility of keeping public agents limited by truly public purposes as state power grows. Even if republicans share the same normative and theoretical commitments, they will arrive at diverse conclusions about the proper size and scope of state power: some will be small-government republicans, like Friedrich Hayek, while others will be big-government ones, like Michael Sandel, producing a republican policy pluralism.

Keywords:   pluralism, power, domination, republicanism, Friedrich Hayek, Michael Sandel
