I've read and tried to find information on what this quote means, but I still don't understand it. What does this quote mean?
"We have had too good an opinion of human nature in forming our confederation."
What is the context of this quote? Who is the author?
George Washington said this
What do you mean by "confederation?" Please clarify so that I can be sure I have sufficient information to help you.
In the early years of confideration, they had a scope build on some beliefs and good intentions.
Washington was saying that the Articles of Confederation were too idealistic and impractical.
Thank you so much. Now I get it!
You're very welcome.
