In Federalists #10, James Madison makes an argument about why a large and diverse republic (such as the one the new Constitution would create) was not only a safe form of government, but a desirable one. In an essay of no more than FOUR (4) double-spaced pages, describe his argument.
*What is a faction and how did one deal with its negative effects on politics?
*Should one get rid of its causes or its effects?
*What are the potential dangers to the nation posed by a democracy and/or a republic and how would the Constitution (in Madison’s view) counteract these problems?
*What special benefits does a large republic have over other forms of government or even a smaller republic?
Be as specific in your answers as possible, but remember, your basic assignment is to summarize Madison’s argument (thesis) in your own words, not Madison’s. Details should be provided as examples to support more general points about Madison’s views. Quotes should be kept to a minimum — but are permitted.
