The Liberty Debates – A Study in Federalism course will examine 12 Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers from 1787 to 1789, selected because of their continued topical relevance today. The two groups used various articles and essays to debate the authority and scope of a centralized government. This study will review the concept of Federalism in which the States are not merely regional representatives of the federal government, but are granted independent powers and responsibilities. The course will analyze six of the most influential Federalist Paper essays and the counter arguments and six of the most prominent Anti-Federalist articles with their accompanying opposition papers.
Understanding these documents and the ratification debate is essential to returning to the foundations and restoring liberty.
