Abstract

[The chapter is focused on Jefferson’s proposal that the US Constitution, before its formal ratification, should include an amendment that would mandate “freedom from monopolies.” The historical context of anti-monopoly ideology in the early republic is described along with Jefferson’s stringent criticisms of the elite/aristocratic power bloc in American society. The moral spirit underlying Jefferson’s amendment proposal to prohibit monopolies is bracketed and theorized as something that might be recovered and deployed as a pedagogical tool to raise awareness of the increasingly dominant role that corporations play in contemporary American society. It is argued that Jefferson would regard the doctrine of “corporate personhood” as anathema to American democracy.]
