"... we behold a republican remedy for the diseases most incident to republican government."

Summary and Significance

The “Federalist Paper #10” is a document that has shaped our nation.  In our country there is always a faction that has beliefs that are different from the majority, but that doesn’t mean that
their voices shouldn’t be heard. Factions can never be removed from society; therefore the public good
can never please everyone.

"... neither moral nor religious motives can be relied on as a adequate control of the masses.".
