PLS HELP 20 POINTS FEDERALIST 51 NO INCORRECT ANSWERS OR ILL REPORT I WILL GIVE BRAINLIEST
After reading Federalist 51 by James Madison, answer the following questions.
1)What is the main claim made by Madison in Federalist 51?
2)What evidence does Madison use to support his claim? Think about larger concepts of power and rights.
3)What is Madison’s purpose of writing this document? What is he hoping to convince people of or achieve? Think about the historic context.
4)Why are Madison’s words significant or important for us today? Think about larger concepts of power and rights as it connects to the branches of government. If it is difficult to pass laws, why is this good or bad?
1).Legislature. In a republican form of government, Madison asserts, the legislative branch is the strongest, and therefore must be divided into different branches, be as little connected with each other as possible, and render them by different modes of election.
2).No. 10 addresses the question of how to reconcile citizens with interests contrary to the rights of others or inimical to the interests of the community as a whole. Madison saw factions as inevitable due to the nature of man—that is, as long as people hold differing opinions, have differing amounts of wealth and own differing amount of property, they will continue to form alliances with people who are most similar to them and they will sometimes work against the public interest and infringe upon the rights of others. He thus questions how to guard against those dangers.
1. In this Federalist Paper, James Madison explains and defends the checks and balances system in the Constitution. “It may be a reflection on human nature, that such devices [checks and balances] should be necessary to control the abuses of government.
2. Madison's idea was that the politicians and the individuals in public service in the U.S. would all have proclamations and ideas that they were passionate about and that they wanted to work hard to enact. The logical solution to ensure that laws and strong ideas were not enacted by a small group of partisan individuals was to use a federalist system where each level of government had different branches, each branch having the authority to impact legislation proposed by other branches. One of the main ways that Federalist Paper 51 was able to encourage checks and balances was by emphasizing the word liberty and by describing that liberty would directly result from the implementation of these governmental concepts.
3. The purpose of No. 51 is, according to Madison, to inform the reader of the safeguards created by the convention to maintain the separate branches of government and to protect the rights of the people and of the country. The biggest threats to the government of the United States would be the ability of one governing branch to obtain too much power over another, and of factions to cause a tyranny of the majority.
4.Madison's key point is that the members of each department should have as little dependence as possible on the members of the other departments, and to stay independent, their own department must not encroach on the others. To secure these ends, Madison suggests that "the necessary constitutional means... and personal motives" are to enable each department (or the leader of the department) to fend off attempts to encroach upon the government of each other's departments. Each branch should have as little influence as possible in the appointment of members of other branches, and should also retain financial independence from one another to prevent corruption.
