The founding fathers of this nation were brilliant men – outstanding communicators, deep thinkers, and well read in the classics. Compare John Adams’ or Patrick Henry’s letters and speeches with the stumbling mutterings and the commercial sound bites produced by our current leaders and you will quickly note a vast difference in comprehension, literary ability, and rhetorical depth. Yet the education of our founders did not comprehend thousands of books over 18-22 years of study. These men focused upon a handful of books written by the best writers and thinkers in world history.
