Sample text

The reliance on approval from the general citizenry for governmental leaders could be viewed as a method for keeping one individual group from becoming too powerful. While this idea undoubtedly has some merit, the political philosophy of a government designed to serve its citizens is probably a more important causal factor. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and in all of history before that time, the world was accustomed to viewing citizens of a state as subjects of a monarch, and the very idea that the citizens should control their government, rather than the government controlling its citizens, was a revolution in political thought.

Getting the issue passed once it is on the agenda, however, is another matter, which is examined in detail in later chapters. McKelvey's demonstration of cycles in multidimensional issue space is considered in a game theoretic model that invokes the notions of universalism and reciprocity as stability-producing devices. The way in which stability is generated is directly related to the notion of agenda control and the characteristics of the resulting equilibrium. Thus, while the book can be read in isolation as an economic analysis of democracy, it can also be viewed as an extension of public choice theory that deals with some currently unresolved questions.

When a society is close to anarchy, the bargaining range of the social contract is, obviously, narrow. The farther a Page 23 society moves from anarchy, the wider this bargaining range becomes. The increasing bargaining range, coupled with the fact that the contract will tend to be biased toward the government, means that as the society evolves, this social contract which has conceptual agreement as Buchanan defines it will be less and less like a social contract that meets the veil-of-ignorance test posited by Rawls.
