Federalist No. 10 Synopsis: Federalist No. 10 is probably the most famous paper of the Federalist Papers. James Madison discusses the problem brought up in Federalist No. 9: how to manage the role of factions in a popular government. Madison addresses factions from a negative standpoint, and defines them as a group of people with interests contrary to the rights of others or the community as a whole. Madison feared that these various economic factions might band together and attempt to subvert the law to promote their own interests. In a democracy, the rich might use their political power to exploit the poor or the more numerous poor might cause dissent among the wealthy. Madison argues that a “system” of government is needed so that no man should be a judge in his own case. The system of government must act to limit the power of all players and, thereby, limit the power of the government itself.

    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.
