Cass Sunstein Won’t Tell Harvard Magazine About White House Service

What looks like just a little “nudge” to Sunstein turns out to be exactly what Alexis de Tocqueville warned about in Democracy in America: a despotism whose power is “absolute, minute, regular, provident, and mild”; that “covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform,” that enslaves people “in the minor details of life.” Such despotism must remain unseen and opaque to be most effective. That is precisely why Sunstein’s silence is so telling–and so worrying.
