Example text

Madison’s brief collegiate career included lessons in political protest, but also a more traditional curriculum that led to a life of statecraft and stewardship. A Scottish “New Side” evangelical Presbyterian, the Reverend Dr. John Witherspoon practiced an orthodox Calvinism but rebelled against church authority and the episcopacy. The “Old Doctor,” as Madison affectionately called his principal instructor, taught a curriculum of philosophy that blended Calvinist Christianity with classical republicanism and Lockean Liberalism.

In Madison’s view, issues of war and diplomacy were properly matters in which Congress (or the Senate) should enjoy at least an equal say with the presidency. But the reality required decisive initiative and discretion in the executive. Later Thoughts Madison’s adjustments to these developments are often described as exposing a basic tension, if not downright inconsistency, between the constitutionalist of the 1780s and the party leader of the 1790s. Federalist 10 was written, after all, to cure “the mischiefs of faction,” yet here Madison, as captain of the Republican opposition in Congress, was working to forge a majority faction.

The states, not the national government, already enjoyed and would long retain the political affection of the American people. Should that advantage ultimately fade, it would result not from the naked assertion of national power, but instead from the people’s desire to mobilize national authority for their own ends. The national government would gain superiority only by persuading Americans of its competence, not by asserting its legal authority. Madison again made this distinction between formal authority and the popular sources of political behavior in Federalist 47–51, his classic essays on the separation of powers.
