Founding Father and American revolutionary President John Adams envisioned a society wherein free people would be ruled by “a government of laws and not of men.” His remarks and philosophies were emblazoned in the 1780 Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the world’s oldest functioning written constitution that soon thereafter served as a model for the 1789 United States Constitution.
