The Paperless Federalists

Federalist No. 11 - Non sibi sed patriae - TPF 11

August 29, 2017

Cary and Justin are back after surviving their heated debate.  This time they actually agree with each other.  In this episode, Cary is quick to point out Hamilton’s cockeyed optimism regarding the collective bargaining strength a newly formed United States would have under the Constitution.  Is Cary secretly anti-union?  Hamilton argues that if the nation can’t assert itself on a global scale, then America will be relegated to passive commerce.  Cary points out America’s woes after having had their own Brexit.  The guys discuss whether Hamilton is an early proponent of global capitalism, pirates, and how to properly build a model of the U.S. Constitution.
