Federalist No. 9 – Alexander Hamilton (1787-1788)

Federalist No. 9 – Alexander Hamilton

  • A strong union will act as a defense barrier against invasion and domestic problems.
  • This will come from a system of checks and balances between the different branches of government.
  • Compare the branches of government to planets orbiting the sun – in a single system altogether but also as individual bodies with their own movement.
  • Unity preserves peace and guards against factions and keeps our security.
  • Hamilton doesn’t agree with Montesquieu’s idea with multiple societies in a Federation. There needs to be a unifying background with smaller regional needs to be fulfilled by different state governments.
