On Thomas Jefferson

Right now I’m fascinated with the ideas and life of Jefferson, partly inspired by what I think was a most accurate portrayal of him in the HBO series “John Adams.”

Since everything on Wikipedia can be infallibly trusted (*sarcasm*) here is their write-up on Jefferson.

Since we’ve been indoctrinated with the politically correct story, here is the real account of Jefferson and his beliefs by Albert Jay Nock. I suspect he took great pleasure in discovering all the dirty secrets about all the people we have always admired. I just hope he doesn’t do that to Jefferson.

Since the only way we can know what Jefferson thought is by reading his own words, here are the letters and writings of Jefferson, courtesy of the Library of Congress.

Since not everyone has time to read that much, here are some pithy quotes that are supposedly from Jefferson.
