Federalist 10 In 1787 Madison wrote in the tenth essay of The Federalist Papers that By a faction I understand a number of citizens whether mounting to a majority or minority of the whole who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion or of interest 30 This became a huge problem during this time because many competing groups were conflicting over a variety of issues Faction is caused because it is in the nature of man to have differing opinions These opinions ranged from religion government and leaders The biggest and worst faction occurred between the rich and the poor The reason that factions are so dangerous is because they usually have the ability and the power to manipulate the results in their own special interests rather then for the public good One of the promises of a well-constructed Union is to break and control the violence of Faction There were only two methods of curing this problem they included either removing its causes or the other by controlling its effects The first method of removing the causes took away the freedom of Liberty However this method couldnt work As Madison said Liberty is to faction what air is to fire an aliment without which it instantly expires 30 Liberty is a necessity to political life and without it you are taking away the right of man Liberty is essential to its existence because it nourishes faction The second method of removing the causes is by giving to every citizen the same opinions same passions and same interests This method is just impractical every man has the right to exercise liberty By doing so there is going to be different opinions as there should be The governments first priority to the people is their right to allow their voices to be heard As long as people have different beliefs a society is going to be divided by interests
