I'm not trying to change anyone's mind, just trying to maybe clarify it for myself.

Highly admirable! When it comes down to what those guys had on their minds, I get lost. I like to believe that they were prescient enough to know that they couldn't know what tomorrow would bring. But there were things they knew. They knew that it was and still is human nature -- somebody is going to try to grab power.

So later, when these guys or those very much like them turned their attention to an agreement of how they chose to be collectively cooperative,

Ever stop to think about what we would be like today without those Washingtons and Jeffersons and  Madisons and Adamses? And those dozens of others whose names we can't recollect? That there wasn't a Josef or an Adolph or a Karl among them?
