New Model, Classical Principles

The New Model Federalist is a series of thirteen essays written between 2016 and 2020 that apply the United States of America’s founding principles to our Union’s present challenges. They are published here in the hope that the thoughts contained within may, in some small measure, help to preserve free government throughout this century.

Read them as individual PDF files by following the links below. For a more portable, user-friendly format, they are also available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and the Apple bookstore as an inexpensive ebook, which contains a unique foreword reflecting on the momentous events of 2020 and early 2021. For in-depth thoughts on some of those events, see the blog and my portfolio of externally-published opinion articles.
