Much of what ih?* author has to say is
i. n?.t new. His v? ry i.oint of
un? is familiar enough by now,
the fact, namely, that the founders of
the Republic, far from trusting the
cemmon people distrusted them suffi
clently to in vein s series of checks upon
the exercise <-f their political power, and
to carry en this system of controls from
the House eta-ted bj ;? restricted suf
frage t.. the Senate, from the Senate t..
the Presidency, and thence m the "su?

expected, tersely holds that "the great?

Constitution ii that it has survived."

thai which he advocates In his pages
ti.-.i;n .
The chief aim of the young Republic,
Mr, Weyl goes on t<> say, was not the
f?usterlng of turn democracy which the
early Americans believed they airead?
?possessed, because they considered l| is
something negative, the abeence ol

and Incomplete outline of the argu?
