Our Heresies

This page contains campaigns that are consistent with Constitutional government, but that are controversial, even to people who say they support the Constitution. We label these campaigns Our Heresies out of respect for public opinion. We hope that people will consider our reasons for adopting these positions, and perhaps work with us to reach the day when they will no longer be viewed as heresies. We want to stress the following . . .

You don't have to agree with everything we propose in order to be a DC Downsizer. We invite you to participate in campaigns when you agree, and to not participate when you disagree. However, we also encourage you to give our arguments serious consideration.

  • “ Who are you who wanted only to be told
    what you knew before? ”
    – Walt Whitman, from "By Blue Ontario's Shore"
  • “ A very popular error: having the courage of one's
    convictions; instead, it's a matter of having the
    courage for an attack on one's convictions! ”
    – Friederich Nietzsche
  • “ All great truths began
    as blasphemies. ”
    – George Bernard Shaw
