Reading through the Anti-federalist papers, I see a similarity to today. While the Federalist Papers were written as coordinated effort by men in Congress to gain favor for their agenda, the Anti-Federalist Papers were written sporadically by various authors. Thefederalistpapers.org put it this way:
“The arguments against ratification appeared in various forms, by various authors, most of whom used a pseudonym.”
Sounds sort of like bloggers versus MSM, today.
The worrisome part is we know who won.
