Most of the United States citizens have always been in favor of the separation of powers since they feel that by the separation of powers they avoid because as it is said by Gray, Leslie and Wynell Burroughs “it is a safeguard against tyranny” since this way “so that each branch checks the other two” (para. 1). The separation of powers consists in separating the powers of the government in three branches; a legislative, an executive, and judicial branch of government. The fact that in 1937 there was an American public’s devotion to the principle of the separation of powers was because as the authors say that “by 1937 the Court was widely regarded by the public as an enemy of working people” (para. 4). After the civil war, after accepting that the 14 th amendment was interpreted to protect corporations, and after the Great Depression, made working people start to get tired of all the power the government had over them and their rights.
