Citizens’ desire to unite and actuate by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other  citizens or to the permanent and aggregate interest of the community. 2. How does Madison propose to deal with the problem of faction?  He proposes two ideas for curing the mischief of factions: one being that we remove the problems causing factions to  arise, and two, by controlling its effects.  He also states two ways of removing causes of faction: one, by destroying the  liberty which is necessary to their existence, two, by giving to every citizen the same opinions, the same passions, and the  same interests. 3. What other constitutional devices, besides those mentioned by Madison, tend to prevent the control of      government by a faction?  Some constitutional devices that tend to prevent the control of government by a faction are the separations of powers and  limits on terms. 4. What are the implications of Madison's theory for political parties and interest groups within our political  system? Madison’s implications for interests groups is that of a core of democratic politics rather that than necessary source of evil.  Interests groups are no longer defines as being opposed to the public interest.  There are necessary channels through  which particular publics participate in government process. Directions  – read each statement and list of answers.  Pick the best answer, circle that choice and mark that letter space  on your scan sheet. 1. In  Federalist 10 , James Madison suggests that the most enduring cause of faction is: a) differing political opinion b) unequal distribution of property c) the separation of powers d) the large geographical area of the country

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
