Publius was the first true faction consisting of known trolls advancing a viewpoint to the public by means of collaborative writing. It authored the Federalist Papers regarding the US Constitution.

It was later revealed that several Founding Fathers of the United States had participated in the faction. They took extremely central roles in the early government and shaped its structure to the present day.

The power and persistence and prosperity of the United States is thus an example of the usefulness of trolling.
