    The Progressive Origins of the Administrative State: Wilson, Goodnow, and Landis.Ronald J. Pestritto - 2007 - Social Philosophy and Policy 24 (1):16-54.

    Constitutional and Legal Challenges in the Administrative State.Ronald J. Pestritto - 2021 - Social Philosophy and Policy 38 (1):6-24.
    Following the Roosevelt administration’s implementation of New Deal programs in the 1930s, the federal courts began to interpret the Constitution in a way that accommodated the rise of the “administrative state,” and bureaucratic policymaking continues to persist as a central feature of American government today. This essay submits, however, that the three pillars supporting the administrative state—the congressional delegation of Article I powers to the executive branch, the combination of powers within individual administrative entities, and the insulation of administrators from (...)

    Founding Liberalism, Progressive Liberalism, and the Rights of Property: Ronald J. Pestritto.Ronald J. Pestritto - 2011 - Social Philosophy and Policy 28 (2):56-73.
    This article contends that liberalism in America underwent a fundamental transformation during the Progressive Era. This transformation took place, partly, through the Progressives' reinterpretation of the doctrine of property rights that had served as a foundation for founding-era liberalism. Progressives rejected the eighteenth-century, natural-rights principles which had privileged individual rights to life, liberty, and property as the fundamental aims of any just government, and argued instead that America at the turn of the twentieth century was beset by a tyranny of (...)
