History demands constant reevaluation, and our founders, good and bad, are not exempt. Still for purposes of civic education some of these founders are useful with exaggeration for our youth. But our youth know less about Washington, Jefferson, or Lincoln than they do about current celebrities. It may be too late for this country. Our violent behaviors and rhetoric would indicate more and more decline. Put not your trust in Americans, my friends, Princetonians or not.
