What do we do about interest groups? Are they all bad?

I am looking for 75 words a piece for each questions
 

  1. What do we do about interest groups? Are they all bad?  In Federalist #10 – James Madison famously discusses this issue.  This is a very challenging reading but pretty standard in American Gov’t Classes.  After reading discuss this text’s impact on your understanding of interest groups.
  2. What specifically do you think should be changed to mitigate the negative consequences of interest groups while maintaining the positive impacts that they have had? If you are against interest groups in general, what other mechanism should people have to collectively engage our political system?
