If we continue with these morals our nation will be stronger and more together as
This document (the Federalist) will provide all the reasons to support the new plan of government described in the U.S. Constitution, and responses to each of the criticisms of the plan. Opponents to the new plan criticize it most on it creating a strong central government that will be abusive to individual liberty. However, an energetic government is crucial to the protection of individual liberty. The plan of government under the Articles of Confederation was unable to effectively protect individual liberties because it did not act directly upon the people, and had no authority to enforce its laws.

The purpose of government according to them was to secure the unalienable rights of the people, protect the people from violence and fraud, and provide justice for all. Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was a warmhearted, courageous woman full of youth and integrity who believed in such ideals. From her inherited wealth and higher education, her family’s status in high New York society,
The purpose of the government is to ensure that every citizen has equal rights and privileges, to defend every member of the society, and to promote both the public and private interests of the people.

In his work, Leviathan, Hobbes proposes that absolute monarchy is the ideal type of government because under the other types of government, the citizens will pursue their private interests at the expense of the public interests.

How is it fair that the aristocratic party can control congress solely? It’s not fair and it imbalances our government. As part of the anti federalist group we are trying to show the common people that they are being deceived by the aristocrats. The aristocrats are creating the constitution without the help of common people because they believe that the common people must not be trusted.
