September 6, 2007 MC 201 Recitation Federalist 47-51 Reading Brief for September 9 o Send briefs to bkliener@msu.edu before lecture (11:30 am) on Monday o About congress, president, and legislature – what’s essential about each of these institutions (role, structure, function) o Question at the end – analytical (what does this mean? What don’t they deal with? How does this relate to what we’ve covered thus far) o Credit/No credit – 1 to 2 pages double spaced o Just get essential points, not minor points o Will send back as a document with comments in the margins (saves trees!) For quiz: need to be able to flesh things out, discuss arguments – more than just the basic point Federalist 10 o At the state level, the problem of factions cannot be solved – the majority will always get their way (majority rules). o Government isn’t better at the state level – national government is better. This creates a larger number of factions which increases the likelihood that the interests of the majority factions will not be adverse to the population – greater likelihood of a common good. o Extended republic – extending the sphere of the factions to promote the common good. o Republican: interchangeable with democratic; problem of majority factions o Do not need to worry about minor factions because of majority rules – Federalists solve the problem of democracy. Lecture: September 5, 2007
