The Never Realized Republic begins with the what the colonists' brought with them to the North American continent, vis-à-vis, English jurisprudence, the Age of Enlightenment in Europe, and the fact that the colonists were not isolated from this larger world. The Revolutionary generation was not isolated in their education, (sharing the same curriculum as their European contemporaries). Neither were their ideas of political science isolated, since they shared the same histories as their European contemporaries, though a classical education. A classical education and tradition that had remained unchanged for more than four hundred years.
The injustices of seventeenth-century English, of mercantilism and privilege, were giving way in late eighteenth-century America; to a nascent capitalism of unprecedented growth and production. The consequence of which produced a politically charged platform of merit over privilege which, (unforseen), created a new political party, Federalist Aristocracy,in a new representative republic.
