    Beautiful writing from Thomas Jefferson, as usual I am studying Lockeian ideas of innate human rights and how they may clash or combine with shamanic belief systems around the world as the 21st century begins to see a revitalization of these ancient cultures, most notably Finnish, Norse, and Egyptian this is a good compendium of Locke s ideas processed through the sensibilities of Thomas Jefferson.

  9. Clare Driscoll Clare Driscoll says:

    Illuminating and fascinatingI hadn t read these documents in many years, and am glad I took the time to read them again It is my objective to be ainformed and conscientious citizen, and studying our Constitution is the foundation of that pursuit.

    It is a classic that is still subject to modern day interp It means something different to everyone It comes in handy from time to time, but sometimes it just doesn t do enough This is an American classic When it was written it was revolutionary It was and remains to be a controversial text.
