The Federalist #10
"We behold a republican remedy for the diseases.."
Summary and Significance
To summarize the Federalist #10, we need a republic instead of a democracy. Doing this would prevent factions and the harmful effects they have on a Union. A republic would enlarge the view of the public, and would also cover the great extent of the country.
This document was extremely important in our nation's history. It convinced its audience that a republic would be better than a democracy as our form of governent. It eventually helped lead to the ratification of the Constitution in New York, which helped it pass and ratify in the other states as well.
