Federalist papers

Please comment on this post. (opinions)

Madison argues in Federalist Paper number 10, that factions will break appart republics, and that destroying liberty and/or ensuring that every citizen will have the same opinions would be the only ways to cure the effects of a faction. He then goes on talking about how an omipresent opinion pool is unpragmatic and that the destruction of liberty is unwise. Do you believe that factions today, have destroyed the republic that the Founding Fathers have created, or do you think that factions help the assist of a more developed nation? Why do you think Madison proved his two reasons wrong in the papers?

  • Federalist papers -

    In my opinion, factions and different points of view have strengthened our country. Look at our 200-year-plus history. We're a strong nation with equal rights for all. We've survived many differences of opinion, including a nearly disastrous civil war.

    What do you think?

    Differences of opinion create new possibilities. Differences of opinion keep a balance.
