males were a sign by their respective states to revise that is fix the articles of confederation. the mess of a federal government we created when we through the brits out. instead the delegates decided to over step their bounds and throw out the articles and and create a brand new form of government and to do so almost entirely in secret. but the shudders of what is now called independence hall locked tight to keep out nosy philadelphians. more important perhaps what went on behind those locked shutters was a governing principal foreign to today's leaders. compromise. big states and small states for example argued over how much representation each should get in the new congress. so they compromised with population based representation in the house and equal representation in the senate. slavery of course was a hugely contentious issue and the subject of a compromise of its own. the most notorious, counting slaves as three-tenths of a human being. sounds barbaric and in a way it
was. put this in context. slave holding states wanted slaves counsele counseled a as e person for purposes of representation in congress. the more slaves, the more people, the more people, the more their political power would grow. so the push by anti slavery forces to reduce slaves from whole person to 35ths reduced the population of slave states and thus their political power. in the end delegates to the constitutional convention produced a document that has survived even thrived for well over 200 years. of course it's got its critics and many of their criticisms are valid. but the whole enterprise reminds me of a line a tributed perhaps inaccurately to winston churchill. democracy he said is the worst form of government except for all the others. where did it all begin? only in philly. ♪ we already told you about dr. heimlich using the maneuver he invented to save woman's live. tonight that woman is talking
