    as yurt has said, having this discussion again, all one needs to do is read the federalist and anti federalist papers. the constitutional convention debate minutes. all the works of the commentators during that time. it should be self explanatory after that.

    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

    - C.S. Lewis
