Federalist No. 1 – Alexander Hamilton

  • The Articles of Confederation aren’t cutting it anymore.
  • Things are unstable and might descend into chaos.
  • Some people may benefit from the Confederation but it’s clear that most of us aren’t doing so well.
  • The following series of Federalist papers focus on 6 major points:
    • The utility of a union to political prosperity
    • The insufficiency of the present condition to preserve that union
    • The necessity of a government at least equally energetic with the one proposed to the attainment of this object
    • The conformity of the proposed constitution to the true principles of republican government
    • Its analogy to the New York State Constitution
    • The additional security which its adoption will afford to the preservation of that species of government, to liberty and to property
