In order to lay a due foundation for that separate and distinct

exercise of the different powers of government,… it is evident that

each department should have a will of its own…

But the great security against a gradual concentration of the

several powers in the same department consists in giving to those

who administer each department the necessary constitutional

means and personal motives to resist encroachments [infringements]

of the others… In framing a government which is to be

administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this:

you must first enable the government to control the governed;

and in the next place oblige it to control itself…

We see it particularly displayed in all the… distributions of

power, where the constant aim is to divide and arrange the several

offices in such a manner as that each may be a check on the other…
