For Part 1, you must write at least one paragraph describing and explaining the three components of Hamiltons Financial Plan. What were the three elements Hamilton outlined? What was their purpose? Why did Hamilton think they were essential to the survival of the republic?
For Part 2, you will be assigned either the Federalist or Democratic-Republican perspective on Hamiltons proposed changes.

"Have the courage to use your own understanding," is therefore the motto of the enlightenment.

Laziness and cowardice are the reasons why such a large part of mankind gladly remain minors all their lives, long after nature has freed them from external guidance. They are the reasons why it is so easy for others to set themselves up as guardians. It is so comfortable to be a minor. If I have a book that thinks for me, a pastor who acts as my conscience, a physician who prescribes my diet, and so on--then I have no need to exert myself. I have no need to think, if only I can pay;
