Politics by Principle, Not Interest: Toward Nondiscriminatory Democracy By James M. Buchanan and
Roger D. Congleton
Foreword by Hartmut Kliemt

Economics

“Politics by principle is that which modern politics is not. What we observe is ‘politics by interest,’ whether in the form of explicitly discriminatory treatment (rewarding or punishing) of particular groupings of citizens or of some elitist-dirigiste classification of citizens into the deserving or non-deserving on the basis of a presumed superior wisdom about what is really ‘good’ for us all. The proper principle for politics is that of generalization of generality.”
