John Locke - Seperation of Powers “Separation of Powers” Separation of powers is the act of separating of responsibilities of the three branches of the government. The idea of this separation is not a new one either. John Locke originally talked about it. He stated that the legislative power should be divided between the King and Parliament in England. Another man also spoke about this separation, the French writer Montesquieu, who wrote about it in 1748 in his book De l’esprit des lois. His poi

A Motley Crew of Political Genius
Soon after America?s victorious fight for independence from British sovereignty, the new nation formed under the Articles of Confederation exhibited signs of instability. The initial spirit of a ?firm league of friendship? was replaced with turmoil and instability. The need for strong-centralized government was apparent. In response, a Constitutional Convention was approved to revise the Articles of Confederation. Over the summer of 1787, despite much debate, passion, differing opinions, sweat,
