Front cover of the publication

"It has been frequently remarked, that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not, of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend, for their political constitutions, on accident and force."
— Passage from The Federalist Papers

The Federalist Papers was a large collection of 85 separate essays, as referenced in "Non-Stop", with articles written by Secretary Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay (under the pseudonym Publius) in defense of the new U.S. Constitution. The original title of this collection was The Federalist, until the 20th century in which it began to be referred to as The Federalist Papers.
