Markets and federalism (subsidiarity) institutionalize humility on the part of State (government, generally) actors. If a policy difference involves a matter of taste, competitive markets in goods and services and federalism (local control) leaves room for the expression of varied tastes, while the contest for control over a State-monopoly provider writes customwriting must inevitably create unhappy losers (who may comprise the vast majority; imagine the outcome of a city-wide vote on next week's lunch menu or the one size and style of shoes we all must wear).
