In reading Pole's annotation alongside the main text, students and scholars ... Show more

Predictions of things to come

by Ron Townsend on Sep 12, 2007

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.
