How does Federalist No 10 relate to today's society?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

James Madison's Federalist #10 was at the time arguing for the ratification of the Constitution. It proposed that factions (political parties, interest groups, etc) were both dangerous and essential to the republic: when factions go awry, a majority can make changes that are not in the interest of other citizens, and factions can also be corrupted; however, having many, and less powerful, factions can be good, for they will nullify each other and prevent one particular group/interest from overiding all of the others. Madison argued that the Constitution would basically take care of the problem of "majority" factions, and take cares of problems that arose from the Articles of Confederation at the time.

In today's society, Madison would probably be pretty pleased. In the US, we have both the Democratic and the Repbulican Parties, as well as the Independent and the Tea Party and several interest groups. No faction has "too much" power, or could get away with passing certain "passions and impulses" that the others would not regulate or shut down. However, parts of Federalist #10 are flawed. Madisons idea that "The promise of a large population as a protection against individuals being elected to power would be considered a laughable proposition by the average voter" today.

What is anti conformity?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Anticonformity is a song written and performed by Christian music artist Krystal Meyers. The word "anticonformity" was coined by her (it is not yet in any dictionary). It therefore means what Krystal Meyers says it means: "Becoming the person that God wants you to be and refusing to become the person that the world and everyone else wants you to be."

The Biblical text Krystal references for this belief is Romans 12:2 "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

What were some of the proslaverly arguments?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Proslavery arguments were based on the notion that slavery was a necessary part of the economy and a "positive good" for slaves. Those who supported slavery argued that it was a beneficial institution providing economic stability and protection for the slaves. Some of the most common proslavery arguments included:

  • Slavery was beneficial to the slaves providing them with a secure and stable life protection and basic needs like food clothing and shelter.
  • Slavery provided economic stability for the slave-owning class.
  • Slavery was a necessary evil for the continuation of the Southern economy.
  • Slavery was a natural way of life and the slaves were better off in servitude than in a free society.
  • Slavery was a form of punishment for people who had done wrong in the past.
  • Slavery was a form of "divine mandate" from God.

Ultimately proslavery arguments were attempts to justify the institution of slavery and to refute any moral or ethical objections to it.
