In today’s cancel culture Thomas Jefferson would have been canceled for the sins you listed in your article. He certainly would not have made it to the Whitehouse. No tweets, no youtube, no posts for TJ.

Today his “Declaration of Independence” might be posted by the modern Thomas Jefferson on Facebook. The Declaration of Independence advocated insurrection as you know. If the government, the British at the time, didn’t like it, his account would have been suspended and his Declaration of Independence lost to history.

Be careful about what your government and corporations are doing to suppress unpopular speech. Freedom of speech, the first amendment is by far the most important right we have in America. We need to vigorously defend this right.
