‘On Federalism and Freedom’- Patriot Papers No. 3

©2010 K.J. Kaufman

The historical tension in our Nation between freedom  and a strong central government forms the basis for the Patriot Papers No. 3.

Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.

If a Nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be….If we are to guard against ignorance and remain free, it is the responsibility of every American to be informed. –Thomas Jefferson “Letters to John Adams and Col. Charles Clancy”

The power of an educated citizenry in their respective states was central to assuring the role of the people as equal to or greater than the servant federal government.  And this tension would be ultimately manifested in the question  of whether or not to develop a central bank. The resumption of this appropriate balance in the constitution lies in the morality and principles of leadership. How do we ascertain those characteristics today?
