It was so interesting to listen to the podcast interview of Sen. Gravel and this podcast interview of Prof. Temkin back to back. First, Sen. Gravel delivered his devastating critique of corrupt representative government's monopoly on law-making and his advocacy for direct democratic law-making. Then we go back in time here to revisit the immense public good that Huey Long was able to accomplish only by essentially subverting the same sort of corrupt representative government that Sen. Gravel described. A fascinating juxtaposition that I lucked into.
