In Robert Dahl's article, "James Madison Republican or Democrat," Dahl gives interpretations and insight on four problems that Madison "regularly sought" to answer:
1) What is the latest system of government to be called?
2) Does a common good exist and, if so, can we know what it is?
3) What are the main threats to accomplishing the common good?
4) Can these threats be overcome and, if so, describe how?
Do you agree or disagree with Dahl's interpretations of Madison's positions on each of such problems?
