1.Are voters informed? If not, why not? According to Professor Caplan, is the problem ignorance or irrationally?
They the voters are not informed at all. My reason being is that they(the voters) as a majority only focus on the appearance of those who are going to run for office. For an example, when Obama was run for office most african americans immediately decide to vote for him based on color and this is due to irrationally:not endowed with reason. In addition, they do not look for information about what he is for and this is due to their emotions for him since he was the first black president.
2. Professor Casey claims that the idea of political representation is an empty one. How does he defend this argument?
He defends it by stating that political representation can not and will not be able to represent everyone. In addition, it would be very difficult since everyone has different opinions. Such as, I would like strawberry and so does five hundred people while, one thousand likes chocolate ice cream and another two hundred likes vanilla ice cream. While they in office can not choose a group of people favorite ice cream over another group plus, they the people would prefer if they would represent only their ice cream: those who like vanilla ice cream would like if it was only their getting represented. See the picture?
3. Professor Hasnas claims that the idea of the rule of law is a myth.What does he mean? What purpose does the myth serve?
When he claims that the rule of law is a myth, he means the rule of law does not exist but was use as an excuse to have other people (humans) to rule over the majority. The purpose that myth serve was to get regular people to think that they were under the rule of law: The rule that is neutral,impartial,and objective, not the rule of Men. For instance, a law for paying one dollar eveytime one enter a store and by this the high ups get extra money,and every store gets money even if one does not but a thing. So is this is rule of law or Men?
