Our Constitution

Words Worth Thinking About

Mar 3, 2023

Have ever wondered why our Constitution seems to be failing us?

Perhaps these words by John Adams will give you some insight.

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other."

John Adams, 2nd President of the United States

Letter to the Officers of the First Brigade of the Third Division of the Militia of Massachusetts, October 11, 1798

Is the Constitution “inadequate” for the people we have become today?
