I am encouraged to hear Thompson’s thoughts, and If I might dovetail his observations, it was the Founders classical education and training in the Greek and Latin that produced our Independence and Liberalism.

By abandoning that “education” of the virtues and true “free mindedness” we produced illiberalism, thinking that we were emancipating ourselves by unshackling from the so called chains of Tradition and Classics.
