Madison then darkly predicted that if “America and Britain should come to an hostile rupture I am afraid an Insurrection among the slaves may & will be promoted,” and added “when the English Troops arrive . . ” As Madison embraced the American cause of liberty, he faced the paradox of simultaneously denying freedom to Virginia’s slaves, well over 100 of whom belonged to him and his father, the wealthiest slaveholders in Orange County (PJM, 1:129–31; Brant, 1:49). Within a month, the citizens of Orange elected both men to the County Committee of Correspondence (Ketcham, 1971:64).
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. Witherspoon taught that while men were inherently sinful and depraved, their Creator simultaneously endowed them with the capacity for virtue. Both Aristotle’s republican “mixed regime,” and Locke’s social contract seemed to him to offer checks and balances to channel and counteract man’s vices and produce a self-negating populace capable of self-governance (Brant, 1:74–76; Sheldon, 2001:10–26; Rakove, 2007:3).
Such an approach, Madison conceded, would honor the people’s sovereignty as the source of the powers of government. But in his view the practical dangers badly outweighed the theoretical beneﬁts. Believing that the people’s elected representatives would most likely violate the constitutional scheme of separation, and that lawmakers would likely act in conformity with the people’s own wishes, Madison doubted that Jefferson’s remedy would prove adequate. The best solution, Madison concluded in Federalist 51, could not rely on the people directly to enforce the separation of powers.
