A common passion or interest will, in almost every case, be felt by a majority of the whole; a communication and concert result from the form of government itself; and there is nothing to check the inducements to sacrifice the weaker party or an obnoxious individual. - Federalist 10

"Publius" argued for ratification in Federalist 10 by claiming which of the following?


The strengthening of the executive branch would improve the ability of the federal government to pass and carry out laws.


The addition of a judicial branch would improve the government and be able to prevent states from being in conflict.


Big states would be better treated due to the creation of the House of Representatives.


A stronger federal government would have a better chance of stopping groups of citizens with goals which might limit the rights of other American citizens, or hurt the interest of the country as a whole.


While taxation might be unpopular, all tax bills would originate in the House of Representatives, ensuring that there would be only taxation with representation.
