The Alembic Files: The Anti-Federalists, Segment 1

1 month ago
You've all heard about the Federalist Papers, but how many of you have heard of the Anti-Federalist Papers? A leading Anti-Federalist and a Pennsylvanian, Centinel was believed to have been Samuel Bryan, who lived up to his pen name by warning Americans of the dangers of a centralized government. In his first Letter, he extols the importance of common-law rights such as a free press and freedom from unjust search and seizure. He warns against an over-reliance on the structure of government, when, instead, elected public servants' accountability to the people should be paramount.
