In her essay on Federalist #62, Janine Turner identifies a quote that is very relevant today:

“The internal effects of a mutable policy are still more calamitous. It poisons the blessing of liberty itself. It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is to-day, can guess what it will be to-morrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action n; but how can that be a rule, which is little known, and less fixed?”

Question for Monday, March 10: Please list another quote in Federalist #62 that Janine mentions in her essay as relevant or profound. Read more
