The Paperless Federalists

Federalist No. 6: Hamilton Tries to Make Our Heads Explode!

May 29, 2017

Justin and Cary welcome Hamilton back to the debate.  Hamilton returns with a litany of historical references, and at times seems annoyed with having to spell things out for the Anti-Federalists.  The guys break through the references to Hamilton’s basic arguments that individuals can cause nation states to have conflict with each other, and that the Anti-federalists are wrong to assume commercial republics are immune from war.  But has history proven the Anti-Federalists right?  Or at least more correct than Hamilton would have you believe?  Justin and Cary analyze whether Hamilton’s references are effective.  In the end, Justin critiques Hamilton’s debate style, and Cary concludes by congratulating Hamilton for overwhelmingly debunking the Anti-Federalists’ weakest argument.
