Abstract

Hewlett Packard Enterprise

The United States Constitution was not simply an epiphany that sprang from the mind of one or even a small group of brilliant thinkers. Instead, it was the result of years of numerous attempts, re-works and compromises. The New Jersey Plan, the Virginia Plan, the Connecticut Compromise—what the founders ultimately created leveraged the collective experience of centuries of nation-building,successes and failures, dating all the way back to 200 B.C. (checks and balances of the Roman Empire the very beginnings of the idea of multiple, separate branches of government) to create a single, timeless and enduring framework that would be the foundation for a new form of democracy. Interestingly, when he did finally sign the Constitution, Benjamin Franklin said that he accepted it “because I expect no better and because I am not sure that it is not the best!”
