Joanne Freeman, Affairs of Honor: National Politics in the New Republic (2002).
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: Poor Alexander Hamilton confronts a bunch of people in 1795, protesting a treaty. And when he tries to calm them down and say, look, you don't have a right to protest a treaty.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: Which they thought was a horrible thing, because it meant that people basically were lining up to promote themselves and not thinking any more about serving any kind of national good.
PETER: This is Joanne Freeman, a historian at Yale.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: And he believes that the thing that's possibly going to tear the nation apart is the demon of faction, the demon of party. It needs to be crushed. And he has the great way to crush it.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: And so he comes up with this idea- which does sound a little insane, but which he actually meant seriously- which is that you have a box.
...
PETER: First though, we're going to return to my interview with Joanne Freeman.
...
But when factions started to get big and they started to look more like what we would call national political parties, well, Freeman says the founders began to worry.
JOANNE FREEMAN: The thing that really frightens them is not local, small, clashing factions, but the idea that you might have national factions.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: Absolutely.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: Exactly.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: No, they actually encountered what they feared. I mean, they were scared of massive numbers of people in the streets protesting, parading, marching, gathering in groups and speaking out against the government. Poor Alexander Hamilton confronts a bunch of people in 1795 protesting a treaty. And when he tries to calm them down and say, look.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: Yes, Hamilton rocks, in ways he never would have imagined.
PETER: Joanne, when fearful politicians looked out at the popular mobilization, democratization of politics and said, whoa, where is this going?
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: Well if you put yourself back in that period when you've got a brand new government that people aren't sure, at the time, is going to be sticking around for a very long- I mean, you do have people, in letters at the time, saying things like, if this government lasts another five years, here's what I think we should do.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: Well partly, that's a matter of practical politics.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: Well, if you get people who have enough shared interests that they're willing to find a way to- I don't want to say fudge- get around, massage the slavery problem.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: I guess it is kind of fine line.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: It's amazing it takes that long.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: Well, one of the vital connectors in this whole process- and it's not that it didn't exist before, but it's much more national to a much greater degree later- is the press.
...
JOANNE FREEMAN: They are manipulating public opinion.
