Abram Balloga Basak Gasioglu Sec Presentation 4/9/2006 The Evil Faction James Madison argues in The Federalist No. 10 , that the most dangerous thing to a stable union is the “factious spirit” in public administrations (57). He states that “Among the numerous advantages promised by a well constructed Union, none deserves to be more accurately developed than its tendency to break and control the violence of faction. Madison defines a faction as a group of citizens who collect and unite under a common interest which is “adverse to the rights of other citizens” or the community as a whole (57). There are constant worries from citizens, who have only the purest of intentions, that the union is destabilized by severe division and partisan politics. The factions resulting from such conflicts then begin to compromise their previous values and goals in order to pursue a party victory. We, including members of such corrosive factions, tend to deny the existence of such tendencies.

    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.
