Federalist Paper #51 Explained: American Government Review

Stephen Childs


  1. "What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary." Context. Makes me wonder what exactly is meant by human nature. In my opinion this is the basis in understanding how everything else comes together.

  2. But no protection from big business…. I wonder where we go from here to remove the chains. Seems easy to see, very hard to do.

  30. Thanks Hip! Helpful info. I read through the Fed papers myself and the writing style is a true pain. It feels like college student wrote 500/1,000 words on their essay, and instead of expanding on their essay, they just use swap out their own words for bigger words, and add in as much bullsh*t as possible to reach the 1,000 word count.

  38. Teaching American politics in an English rock band shirt. Anyone else see the irony? Lol

  45. "Supply connect between this weaker department and the weaker branches of the stronger department, by which the latter may be led to support the constitutional rights of the former, without being too much detached from the rights of its own department." How did James Madison think about this method?
