Excerpt: ... CONCLUSION. Political philosophy must analyze political history; it must distinguish what is due to the excellence of the people, and what to the excellence of the laws; it must carefully calculate the exact effect of each part of the constitution, though thus it may destroy many an idol of the multitude, and detect the secret of utility where but few imagined it to lie. -- Bagehot. Congress always makes what haste it can to legislate. It is the prime object of its rules to expedite law-making. Its customs are fruits of its characteristic diligence in enactment. Be the matters small or great, frivolous or grave, which busy it, its aim is to have laws always a-making. Its temper is strenuously legislative. That it cannot regulate all the questions to which its attention is weekly invited is its misfortune, not its fault; is due to the human limitation of its faculties, not to any narrow circumscription of its desires. If its committee machinery is inadequate to the task of bringing to action more than one out of every hundred of the bills introduced, it is not because the quick clearance of the docket is not the motive of its organic life. If legislation, therefore, were the only or the chief object for which it should live, it would not be possible to withhold admiration from those clever hurrying rules and those inexorable customs which seek to facilitate it. Nothing but a doubt as to whether or not Congress should confine itself to law-making can challenge with a question the utility of its organization as a facile statute-devising machine. The political philosopher of these days of selfgovernment has, however, something more than a doubt with which to gainsay the usefulness of a sovereign representative body which confines itself to legislation to the exclusion o...

Descrizione libro Peter Smith:, 1973. Hard Cover. Condizione libro: Fine-. This book is a reprinting of the edition published in 1956 by World Publishing Co., 222 pages, Introduced by Walter Lippman. "Woodrow Wilson wrote this book in 1883 and 1884. When he reread it in 1900 (in order to do a preface to the fifteenth printing), he had such serious misgivings about it that he warned his readers new developments "may put this whole volume hopelessly out of date. Soon thereafter he thought they had, and in 1908 he wrote another book, his constitutional Government In The United States, to supersede it. In this second book are the main ideas which Wilson took with him to the White house in 1912. The basic difference between the first and second is the conception of the power of the President."
