  • Predictions of things to come Sep 12, 2007
    by Ron Townsend

    Basically this is a series of essays meant to support the writing of the US Constitution
    and it argues for the union rather than a group of confederacies. Even though it was
    early in the history of the union many of the statements made are predictions of things
    to come and this, in itself, suggest the importance of these essays. Everything that
    happened later from Lincoln to Bush are in these essays. As I have only read through
    13 of the essays it is only a beginning to what comes in the rest. This group of essays
    takes all the writings of the period including those about the social contract in defending
    its position. Anyone wanting to understand our current President must read these essays. I personally learned enough in reading the first 13 essays to make intelligent
    choices at the polls. One of the arguments compared Great Britain who has several
    separate confederacies--Ireland, Wales,Scotland, Cornwall-- and their difficulties over
    the centuries that led to conflict and war on their own borders.
