Ideas:
“  Along with addressing the phenomenon of regulatory dark matter and approaches by which a classical liberal posterity can eliminate it and restore Article I accountability and democratic legitimacy, I'm currently working on and most interested in the concept of an "Abuse-of-Crisis Prevention Act" to counter the "reset" and "build back better" mindsets. Covid was the third economic shock of the 21st century and its effects devastating in terms of political predation and exploitation by policymakers to expand their power. An "AOC Prevention Act" must be in place before the next shock occurs. If not, that is also a job for a posterity picking up the pieces and restoring a constitutional republic. (There'll always be an America, but perhaps not here.)  ”
