Ok folks. We are Living
out the Anti-federalists perspective of Federalist #10 yet we are not
even close to finishing our understanding or application of Madison’s
words here. In this program I will be delving into more of the heart
of the vanity to expect that there will be a continuum of
‘enlightened statesmen’ and the ‘Causes and Effects’ of Factions.
I bring you into a little
clearing understanding of Madison’s thought process here by going
back to Witherspoon’s Lectures on Moral Philosophy. We need the
background info to understand the heart of this Framer of the

did not facilitate the mid week discussion that I was intending
regarding the relationship of Madison to John Witherspoon. Therefore,
this week I bring in the interesting tidbits about Madison and a good
deal about John Witherspoon.
What is striking about
Witherspoon is detailed in the ‘Introduction’ of the reference
containing his ‘Lecture on Moral Philosophy’ or as otherwise titled
‘Moral Society’. What caught me is the reality that many of the
pastors in the US are even more now of the Moderatist perspective
then like Witherspoon who was a Populist in the church debates in
Scotland. So that you don’t have to look it up, which most of you
would not do, here is the quote from the Intro for clarification:

I could not find the reconciliation of his comments and then I thought of the sermon on last Sunday by Alistair Begg, the writings of John Witherspoon and the amazing find in Federalist #10.
This program is my simple citizen analysis of the Moore-Strange run off.
