The Real Thomas Jefferson . . .

. . . was not an advocate of “one nation indivisible,” explains the great Clyde Wilson.  He was a nullifier and a secessionist, and not an “abstractionist.”  He would have thought that today’s Straussian abstractionists were a crazed, dangerous cult.  And he proposed to the Virginia legislature a means of peacefully ending slavery in Virginia before the nineteenth century.
