    Obviously I’ve got some catching up to do with my reading! One link has already caught my eye.

    Thomas Jefferson: America’s Founding Sociopath

    Last year I was reading some very old books written by visitors to America because I wanted to get a feel for the country as it was then. One of them was dated 1832 – it was by an Englishwoman who lived for a while in Cincinnati. Here is what she wrote about Jefferson.

    Few names are held in higher estimation in America, than that of
    Jefferson; it is the touchstone of the democratic party, and all
    seem to agree that he was one of the greatest of men; yet I have
    heard his name coupled with deeds which would make the sons of
    Europe shudder. The facts I allude to are spoken openly by all,
    not whispered privately by a few; and in a country where religion
    is the tea-table talk, and its strict observance a fashionable
    distinction, these facts are recorded, and listened to, without
    horror, nay, without emotion.

    Mr. Jefferson is said to have been the father of children by
    almost all his numerous gang of female slaves. These wretched
    offspring were also the lawful slaves of their father, and worked
    in his house and plantations as such; in particular, it is
    recorded that it was his especial pleasure to be waited upon by
    them at table, and the hospitable orgies for which his Montecielo
    was so celebrated, were incomplete, unless the goblet he quaffed
    were tendered by the trembling hand of his own slavish offspring.

    I once heard it stated by a democratical adorer of this great
    man, that when, as it sometimes happened, his children by
    Quadroon slaves were white enough to escape suspicion of their
    origin, he did not pursue them if they attempted to escape,
    saying laughingly, “Let the rogues get off, if they can; I will
    not hinder them.” This was stated in a large party, as a proof
    of his kind and noble nature, and was received by all with
    approving smiles.

    If I know anything of right or wrong, if virtue and vice be
    indeed something more than words, then was this great American
    an unprincipled tyrant, and most heartless libertine.

    Mind you, this was well-known gossip in a distant near-frontier town. Good Christian Americans of the day actually admired the horrific behavior of the asshole Jefferson.

    Some things just don’t change.
