Corruption and Reform

Reading from Federalist No. 10

In this brief pod, I share a snippet from Federalist No. 10 discussing why political division is a regular occurrence in the American republic and how reform is the pathway to unity. And for reform to happen, everyday citizens must be involved.

“Complaints are everywhere heard from our most considerate and virtuous citizens, equally the friends of public and private faith, and of public and personal liberty, that our governments are too unstable, that the public good is disregarded in the conflicts of rival parties, and that measures are too often decided, not according to the rules of justice and the rights of the minor party, but by the superior force of an interested and overbearing majority.”

While things look bad, it’s been this way before, and America has always managed to reform itself and create progress.

P.S. I said continental congress in the pod when I meant to say Articles of Confederation.
