James Madison and the Dilemmas of Democracy

What kind of government did the Father of the Constitution envision? “In framing a government of men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place, oblige it to control itself.”
This nice article (James Madison and the Dilemmas of Democracy) is from City Journal. The author is Myron Magnet.
