Chapter XV    UNLIMITED POWER OF THE MAJORITY IN THE UNITED STATES, AND ITS  CONSEQUENCES    ● According to this document, legislatures are the easiest body of government to influence  and “sway” by the majority     ● At this time in history, the executive and judiciary branches did not have the same level  of authority as the legislative     ● Checks and balances was not functioning 100 %     ● The danger was the idea that the interest of the many outweighed the interest of the few    The dangers of a majority   1. Laws that quickly change cause instability  2. There is no long term stance in projects or laws because legislatures are  constantly replaced  3. A majority is only the opinion of each individual  4. A majority is not always right and needs to be checked as well  5. The biggest danger = “ ​nadequate securities which one finds there against  tyranny”    ● The biggest fear discussed in this chapter is that the legislative branch will  become too powerful    ● “If minorities do not have more freedom, rule by majority could lead to new  revolutions”    ● The opinions of the minority group must be addressed because the majority can  be corrupted
