What principles did Americans of our founding generation believe were crucial for the maintenance of a free society? What were the "first principles" influencing America's Founders when they instituted the constitutional law of "We the People"?

John Adams once said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." What were the principles Adams had in mind when he said this? And just how important is a general understanding of them for America's free republic to continue?

This short monograph is extensive in its scope, yet brief in its presentation.
