James Madison’s Essay #51, The Structure of the Government Must Furnish the Proper Checks and Balances Between the Different Departments, is one of the most monumental and thoughtful essays ever written about the design of the American form of government that we have enjoyed for over 230 years. Please SHARE this with your friends.
It is worth every American’s time to read it – or, at the very least, read the summary in order to understand what we all need to protect.
Madison’s purpose was to help the readers understand how the structure of the proposed government makes liberty possible.
