{Read Book} ⚞ The Federalist Ê The Federalist Papers Are A Series Of Articles Encouraging The Ratification Of The United States Constitution The Federalist Papers Serve As A Primary Source For Interpretation Of The Constitution, As They Outline The Philosophy And Motivation For The Proposed System Of Government Hamilton, Madison And Jay Wanted To Encourage The Ratification And Also Set The Standards For Future Interpretation Of The Constitution This Book Is Essential For Understanding The Beginnings Of The Greatest Democracy In The Modern World First and foremost let me just say, God Bless These United States of America Significance of this book is beyond a 5 Enjoyability is below a 3 Hence I ll meet in the middle and give it a 4 If your going into reading this thinking it s going to be awesome, you re wrong It s a full time job and it s extraordinarily difficult, however difficult it may be it is essential reading These men were brilliant and I am incredibly thankful they existed at the Time they did to allow us the future we live in The fact that all these men existed in this place at the same time to create such an all star team is nothing short of divine providence I agree with so much of the reviews I ve seen here on Goodreads on TFP, it should be mandatory education from 1 8 and all thru high school The youth would benefit tremendously to know how much blood, sweat, and tears was poured into creating the nation we all so thoroughly enjoy today Not only should this education be taught in school but the foundation of this education should be laid at home to our children long before they arrive As difficult as this book was to read, and so utterly boring most of the time I absolutely loved it and I highly encourage anyone thinking about reading it do so with earnest expedience Accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary in the same hands may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny Madison, 47 If men were angels, no government would be necessary If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this you must first enable the government to control the governed and in the next place oblige it to control itself Madison, 51 Whatever fine declarations may be inserted in any constitution respecting it, must altogether depend on public opinion, and on the general spirit of the people and of the government Hamilton, 84 Read the Federalist Papers Then, just for kicks, switch on Hannity Colmes, or Crossfire, or read USA Today and then ask yourself, WHAT THE FUCKING CHRIST HAPPENED TO THIS COUNTRY Then crawl into a corner and whimper for eight hours straight That s what I did. With all the talk in political discourse these days about what the US Founding Fathers intended , I felt it was time to go straight to the source If you ve ever had similar thoughts, this is the place to start This work is long around 22 hours of Librivox audio and written in archaic, ornate English But anyone reading it will be immediately impressed by its scholarship and depth It also gives a clear picture of what said Founding Fathers were up against unbridled, often unprincipled, and outright rude opposition to pretty much every last bit of the Constitution at every turn This series of essays was painstakingly written to try and convince the country that, while the new Constitution was not and could not be perfect, it was urgently needed to get the Union government functional, and that it was perhaps the best that could be done, given an imperfect world and us imperfect humans The writers of the new Constitution were clearly trying their utmost to create a government and society as fair, conflict free and well functioning as they could manage Interesting how slaves were reluctantly counted, in a compromise with the South, as having 3 5 the personhood of a free born man Really, every American, and anybody interested in how power, justice, and societies work, should read this carefully It s left me a little tired, but happy and satisfied. Praise God I m an American One should not be able to graduate public high schools without mastery of Basic Economics The Federalist Papers.
