After the revolution against England, and a few years of wrangling among
the several states (of which there were 13), a gang of statists that today
would be called "fascists" (for their desire to have a strong government
coupled with old-line businesses—to rob the populace and prevent
competition), hijacked a convention of delegates from the state
governments, sent to Philadelphia to amend the Articles of Confederation
that bound the states together in a loose union. They redirected the
convention to propose the scrapping of the Confederation in favor of a new
and different "super-state" to be called "The United States of America"
and proposed a constitution to authorize it to exist and give it form.
