When Beard Went Too Far Analysis

Satisfactory Essays

I would say that most modern historians believe that Beard went too far. Beard looks at the Framers and argues that they were acting as they did for selfish reasons. But it is possible to act in a way that promotes the interests of your class but is not selfish. If you truly believe that a system that helps your class will help everyone also, then you are not being selfish. Most historians today would argue that this is what the Framers were doing and I tend to agree with them.
