What was the framers argument against creating a pure democracy?

I'm glad you used the more sensible phrase framers ( rather than the often ambiguous Founding Fathers which could apply to the Pilgrims, etc) well they were afraid that public opinion could get out control ( witness the French Revolution) there was also a feeling that genuine popular government was and is an impossibility. a certain utility argument towards a Big wheel ( the term Big Brother had not yet been coined) sort of wheelhouse presidency was certainly viable- Washington, one might add RAN UNOPPOSED, the only US president in history to do so. also the whole idea was new ( government by the people_ so it made sense to go at it slowly, not full blast. ) It might be worth mentioning in the period of roughly the roaring twenties- and not evidentally connected either for or against Communism- there were SOME political theorists who espoused, among other things- Government control of all transportation on main lines ( then, chiefly, Railroads) various protective legislation ( prohibition was one start, that fizzled out) and something of an Orwellian control system . One such writer was on Sidney Sheldon, who penned In His Steps Today- which was written in the twenties- I read a copy of this many years ago in the Hoboken Public Library and thought ( this guy thinks like a Nazi, though there were no racial elements) In power Sheldonism would be a sneeze away from dictatorship, then again the idea that the citizen was something like a Hooky-Club juvenile miscreant- kids don't know what's good for them- the paternalistic brand of politics still with us. the possibility of a borderline dictatorial scheme was serious enough Herbert Hoover wrote a book about it also around l928 called The Challenge to Liberty, read it!
