QUOTES FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY
"We the people of the United States of America, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Untied Staed of America."
George Washington to the Delegates at the Constitutional Convention
Fourth in a series of excerpts from
The Federalist Papers
Number 1 of "The Federalist Papers" was a
General Introduction by Alexander Hamilton.
Numbers 2,3,4 were written by John Jay and are
"Concerning Dangers from Foreign Force and Influence."
NO 4: by John Jay
My last paper assigned several reasons why the safety of the people would be best secured by union against the danger it may be exposed to by just causes of war given to other nations; and those reasons show that such causes would not only be more rarely given, but would also be more accommodated by a national government than either by the State Governments or the proposed little Confederacies.
But the safety of the people of America against dangers from foreign force depends not only on their forbearing to give just causes of war to other nations, but also on their placing and continuing themselves in such situation as not to invite hostility or insult; for it need not be observed that there are pretended as will as just causes of war.
It is too true, however disgraceful it may be to human nature, that nations in general will make war whenever they have a prospect of getting anything by it; nay, that absolute monarchs (Dictators, Oligarch Rulers, and Marxists) will often make war when their nations are to get nothing by it, but for the purposes and objects for personal affronts, ambition, or private compacts to aggrandize or support their particular families or partisans....(Regimens or type of government)
If they see that our National Government is efficient and well ministered, our trade prudently regulated, our militia properly organized and disciplined, our resources and finances discreetly managed, our credit re-established, our people free, contented, and united, they will be much more disposed to cultivate our friendship than provoke our resentment.
