2. On what grounds did “Brutus” argue against large republics

Many Histories

In Chapter 8, review the arguments over ratifying the Constitution. Read the documents "Republican

Remedy" on page 181 in the textbook. (In earlier editions of the textbook, this may be called "Dueling

Documents" and be on a different page.) Answer each question in several complete sentences. Refer to

specific statements in each document when appropriate. There are 3 questions:

1. How did Madison define the difference between a democracy and a republic?

2. On what grounds did “Brutus” argue against large republics?

3. Has our republican form of government been successful at avoiding the kinds of

oppression and “improper projects” that Madison describes?
