According to James Madison, what would be the result of factions, or political interests, in a large republic?

Answer:

According to James Madison, factions are an inevitable event within politics due to the nature of man and his constant desire to ally with those similar to themselves and distance others who are different to them. He believes that uncontrolled factions within a large republic would only lead to corruption, oppression, and the loss of liberty, and the only way to combat this is through a strong constitution, representative government, and the upholding of the law.
