The central failure of the Articles was the weakness of the central government. On the other hand, Madison labors to convince his audience that the state governments will still retain a significant degree of authority and will, in many respects, have a far greater impact on daily American life than the national government. This tension illustrates the central compromise between state and federal authority that serves as one of the key pillars of the American Constitution.
