At Harvard and Stanford, historians are putting together ground – breaking research on just how Benjamin Franklin made intellectual connections with other prominent intellectuals to become one of the preeminent thinkers and inventors of his day. Ground – breaking on “how”. Totally missing or ignoring the conclusions he came to. The”why”. Why of all possible forms of government that he could have been involved in setting up, of all the multiplicity of forms that had been tried before, he was so enamored of a representative republic and so contemptuous and dismissive of both democracy and of any form of socialism. Which he could just as easily have chosen. The pearls of history are sitting there, waiting. Harvard and Stanford could just as easily show why the direction that the lib-progs are taking the country was so beneath the consideration of one of the most brilliant men on the planet 237 years ago.
Might actually let the country see why it is still such a bad idea now.
