How did the factions that James Madison refer to in Federalist No. 1o apply to how both the Federalists and Anti-Federalists planned to deal with the problems of government we discussed in class today?

    I believe that Federalists opposed factions more than Anti-federalists because in Federalist Paper No.#10, Federalists were extremely against factions. They feared factions because they believed that factions would destroy the government. The Anti-Federalists on the other had wanted more public opinion and encouraged participation of the citizens. They did not believe in a big powerful, centralized national government, and thus, did not believe in a huge republic, therefore, they did not believe that factions would destroy the republic.

    Am I right?

    What do you think?
