Abstract:Given the fundamental tension between order and liberty in our democratic regime, this dissertation argues that a pious gadfly may be a more useful model for democratic citizenship because it better satisfies the requirements of citizenship for our democratic regime. This dissertation explores a civic education plan for creating a pious gadfly that avoids the problems of the standard position and better responds to the root tension within our democratic regime.
