After the Constitutional Convention Benjamin Franklin was asked what kind of government we had. His famous reply speaks to the fragility of our constitutional form of government. Middlebury Professor Emeritus of Political Science Eric Davis explores how the brilliant foundational concepts established in 1787 remain just as essential—and fragile—today.
