Dr Bill Obrien’s Virtual Civics, Wednesday, 25 September 2019

Our program today focuses on James Madison and what he had in mind regarding our Constitution and what it meant for the People. Madison’s Federalist Papers #10 and #51 were referenced in this discussion as well as an essay by Larry Kramer called, “The Interest of the Man”: James Madison, Popular Constitutionalism, and the Theory of Deliberative Democracy.

These references give you only a thumbnail of our discussion and we hope you’ll join us in perusing this and many other topics that are crucial in understanding how government was designed to function and for what purposes they hoped to achieve.
