For Friday and Monday, we are reading several critics of modern democracy, largely undertaken from an elitist perspective.
Edmund Burke’s “Speech to the Electors of Bristol” is here.
For Thursday, we are reading Madison’s Federalist 10 and Federalist 51.
I will be re-publishing a few reading questions on these readings soon. Also, please remember that you will have a reading quiz on the course Blackboard site (due Monday night).
