3. What is Madison’s definition of a faction? a. Groups of citizens who are passionate about a cause a. “You make it less probable that a majority of the whole will have a common motive to invade the rights of other citizens; or if such a common motive exists, it will be more difficult for all who feel it to discover their own strength, and to act in unison with each other.
