Writes an anonymous emailer:

Who was the last Supreme (or even any law school student or even a professor) to read the Federalist – especially since 1929 ??

No doubt that there’s very little discussion about the Constitution in any way, and it’s certainly a concern. But, an even greater problem than ignorance of The Federalist Papers is that those who actually read about the role of the federal government seem to rely solely on the Federalist.

They avoid the constitutional convention, the public ratifying debates, the objections of the anti-federalists, 18th century dictionaries, and more. All this is essential for a full understanding of the original meaning, intent, and understanding of each clause of the constitution.
