Centinel, in Letter no. 5, reiterates some key assertions from his previous papers. Centinel stresses that America is too large and diverse for a central, overarching government. He a states that that a key supporter of the federal plan, in a rare moment of candor, admitted that the new government would need to be foisted upon the population; that the people would need to be bullied or tricked into accepting it. Centinel further argues that the Constitution will mold the several states into one whole that will subjugate the citizenry.
