What does this mean though? No one was naive enough to really believe there could be such a thing as a divisionless, homogeneous government. Washington himself had no problem using violence against his "own people" to enforce the power of the state, more than anything his anti party sentiment is a call for unity of the aristocratic/bourgeoisie classes to solidify and protect their power. There cannot be such a thing as a partyless state without a classes state (i.e. its not possible) and all the founding fathers were well aware of such.
