Arguments Against Federalists

347 Words2 Pages
Although I agree with some points of the Federalists, I mainly find the Antifederalists’ arguments more persuasive. Regarding the view of ‘The People,’ the Federalists believe that having an authority figure make decisions instead of the mass is more efficient. However, with access to education, people are educated to understand and develop their own choices instead of relying on one person to make the decisions for them. One example are the people voting in the presidential elections. The people choose who they want as the president of the country. Moreover, the major fear of the Antifederalists is having the wealthy, elite be in office. Their reason is justified because they believe in the power of the mass rather than the power of the wealthy.
