What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

I believe that we were all endowed with free will by God and that with the right education and parental guidance can best govern ourselves within a Christian moral framework. An unrestrained government which can be co-opted by persons antithetical to this view is the greatest impediment and danger to our individual freedoms, which was foreseen by our Founding Fathers.
