What did Hamilton argue Federalist 84?
Furthermore, what is the Federalist Paper 84 about?
Federalist No. 84 is notable for presenting the idea that a Bill of Rights was not a necessary component of the proposed United States Constitution. The constitution, as originally written, is to specifically enumerate and protect the rights of the people.
One may also ask, what did the Federalist Papers argue? What the Federalist Papers Said. In the Federalist Papers, Hamilton, Jay and Madison argued that the decentralization of power that existed under the Articles of Confederation prevented the new nation from becoming strong enough to compete on the world stage, or to quell internal insurrections such as Shays's Rebellion
Likewise, people ask, why did Hamilton who authored Federalist No 84 argue that including a bill of rights would pose a danger to the new nation?
Hamilton argues that a bill of rights would not only be unnecessary, but dangerous. A bill of rights would, for instance, attempt to limit certain governmental powers which are not even granted. This is so because the state and national governments will be rivals for power.
Who argued in Federalist No 84 that the Constitution itself even without amendments was a Bill of Rights?
The Federalist Papers, specifically Federalist No. 84, are notable for their opposition to what later became the United States Bill of Rights. Hamilton didn't support the addition of a Bill of Rights because he believed that the Constitution wasn't written to limit the people.
