It determines not only the size of the farms as well as the methods of production applied; it determines no less what fields should be tilled and what fields should be left fallow.
Another example of the survival of atavistic reform ideas is provided by the popularity of government interference to favor debtors at the expense of creditors.
When more than 2500 years ago Solon in Athens resorted to such a policy and when more than 400 years later in Rome the Gracchi brothers adopted a similar course, they could consider their policies as a method of favoring poor people at the expense of richer ones.

It is thus a measure of Johnson's declining prestige in Congress that the Senate should have seriously considered a resolution declaring that national commitments to foreign governments would henceforth be binding only when Congress agreed on them with the President.
Introduced by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman J. William Fulbright, the Senate's foremost dove, and co-sponsored by Georgia's Richard Russell, its most powerful hawk, the measure had wide backing, reflecting the upper body's atavistic yearning for a role it thinks it once had.
If passed, the resolution would have been no more binding on the President than one asking Americans to be kind to dogs.
