From Free Governments To Those Of The Most Tyrannical That Ever Existed

Posted by | March 10th, 2013

“History furnishes no example of a free republic, any thing like the extent of the United States. The Grecian republics were of small extent; so also was that of the Romans. Both of these, it is true, in process of time, extended their conquests over large territories of country; and the consequence was, that their governments were changed from that of free governments to those of the most tyrannical that ever existed in the world.”

Brutus #1 (Anti-Federalist, October 18, 1787)
