Did Hamilton, Madison, and Jay Overstate Their Case for Adopting the U.S. Constitution?
Please join us for the Show-Me Institute Book Club on the second Wednesday of each month for scintillating discussions and free snacks. We are currently exploring The Federalist Papers by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay. Meetings begin promptly at 7 p.m. at the institute’s headquarters (4512 West Pine Blvd. in the Central West End).
Questions to ponder if you dare:
Did Hamilton, Madison, and Jay overestimate the soundness of the federal design when advocating for the adoption of the U.S. Constitution? Why did Frederic Bastiat carry such a negative view of morality, law, and government? Has our federal government succumbed to many, if not most, of the corrosive influences Bastiat identified as likely to corrupt civil society?
Please join us for a lively discussion of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You may email the Book Club at [email protected]. RSVPs are appreciated.
