Presidential Frontiers: Underexplored Issues in White House Politics

By Ryan J. Barilleaux | Go to book overview

over and against other options constrains and disciplines choice and perspective, how privileging certain forms of communication and decision-making processes inhibits or prohibits other forms of communication and decision-making processes, how such inhibitions and prohibitions enable some kinds of solutions while disabling others, how some forms of power lead to the generation and perpetuation of specifiable elements within collective memory while negating others. This is a very short list, to be sure; but whatever starting point one might choose, moving forward with an explicit understanding that we occupy a planet that is vastly smaller and more fragile than the framers ever might have conceived demands that we look very seriously at the other side of power.


NOTES
1.
We are advancing a generic criticism here rather than a critique of specific individuals.
2.
Civil rights policy aside--and minorities are affected by policies that do not bear the labels "civil rights" or "welfare."
3.
We think it important to note that both authors have served in numerous professional capacities. Our experiences in those capacities--all too often severely tested and almost always defined by the need to respect the parameters of our disciplines while fostering an atmosphere of inclusion--have made us painfully aware that these tensions are immense and not easily reconciled.
4.
Editor's Note: I have left this statement as the authors have written it, although I disagree with their claim. Most scholars accept the idea that the framers were aware of the Iroquois League and other associations, but the very word "federalism" has its roots in "feudalism." It was not a completely new concept to the Euro-American mind.
5.
We use the present tense throughout when referring to the Haudenosaunee because the League still functions and continues to assert and practice its sovereignty--as evidenced, for example, by their declaration of war on Germany in 1942 ( Hauptman 1981).
6.
We hasten to add that we offer this observation as a generalization that is not meant to apply to all Native nations.
7.
We wish to make it clear that we are not suggesting that the original inhabitants of this land were universally peaceful, bucolic beings who lived in perfect peace and harmony. Such arguments are disingenuous, at best.
