First Principles: The Best Legislation Comes From Methodical Deliberation and Resolve

“Men, to act with vigor and effect, must have time to mature measures, and judgment and experience, as to the best method of applying them. They must not be hurried on to their conclusions by the passions, or the fears of the multitude. They must deliberate, as well as resolve.” – Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
