Walter Eucken on Subsidiarity - Dictionary of Arguments

Mause I 72
Subsidiarity/Eucken: thesis: the construction of society should take place from the bottom up. "...what individuals or groups can do independently, they should do so on their own initiative to the best of their ability. And the state should only intervene where its assistance is in no way to be missed". (1)
Originally, the principle of subsidiarity originated in Catholic social teaching. (2)
This is about minimizing state coercion. (3) SubsidiarityVsPaternalism. See Subsidiarity/Thaler, Paternalism/Musgrave.
