“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce.”

-James Madison-


            James Madison thought that foreign policy is a need. It can be seen in the quotation I choose above. The quotation above represent about the need of foreign policy as on of the component in the state governance. All states have their own interest and business. As James Madison stated through the quotation above, the state’s matters are numerous and indefinite. State government can’t handle them by their own hand, even for United State of America, which has super power, I think this thing happen too.

            There are a lot of state matters, it can be defined as those which can be handled by state government and those which can not. The internal matters itself sometimes have already complicated for state to handle. Those which can not be handled will be exercised principally on external object as the quotation above has stated. That is why foreign policy is definitely needed. To help fulfill internal needs, state itself can’t always be super power, that’s why state needs others to help fulfill their needs by for example doing the foreign commerce.

            The foreign policy made by state government should represent state interest so their needs can be fulfilled. Since the function of the foreign policy as stated through the quotation above is to help state handle the matters they can’t handle and as well to help fulfill state’s interest. In international system, states are the same as human being, they need others to remain exist.
