Like the Founders in general, Anti-Federalists in America's Founding Period may be said to have held a 'mixed' view of human nature. For instance, an 'anti-Federalist' such as Thomas Jefferson views humanity capable of achieving and maintaining orderly society through the power of natural reason, education, and of course self-disciplined choices worthy of the approval of civilized persons. On the other hand, he also saw human nature as subject to great temptations and frequently mistaken in its reasonings and intentions. Thus, human government at all levels is not rightly governed solely by popular will but rather requires many checks-and-balances, including the firm hand of elite leadership, which itself must be regulated in some way.

What sense are human nature and nurture not opposed to each other?
