Another silly thing all the founding fathers missed in the Articles is that the continental congress couldn’t enforce any laws. Which in so many words meant that congress could make all the laws they wanted but none of the states had to follow it due to the state government having much more power than the federal government.

The government should have come together soon after this and made the decision to make better laws for the government to control the people. I can see why the people rebelled but it was originally the peoples fault for not helping the government fund the war but it was also the government fault for not thinking about all the scenarios before making the law.
