The Mischiefs of Factions: Federalist #10

HW for Wednesday: Read 297-305 and take the reading quiz.

Interest Group Identification Terms


Once again, I am gone today attending a seminar by the Bill of Rights Institute on Congress and the Constitution. We are starting our next unit--Interest Groups. Just as George Washington warned about the "baneful" effects of political parties, James Madison warns about the dangers of factions (aka interest groups) and the newly proposed Constitution's ability to mitigate them in Federalist #10.

Today in class, you will read Federalist #10. As you read (or after you are finished) please fill out this chart on Federalist #10 to help you further understand Madison's arguments.






Here are a couple of videos that might help you understand Federalist #10:
