You and I may be two of the very few at FR without a hate-on for AH.
I believe you are correct. I hear lots of people hating Hamilton, but firmly believe that the emotion is a result of limited studies.
We have to give credit where credit is due. Look at how the different views of the founders resulted in a wonderful government. Hamilton was dead-on right in some ideas, not in others. Hatred should find no quarter when all is considered.
Right now I’m reading about the strange actions of Madison, who seems to be above reproach.
Fascinating stuff; too bad we can’t manage what they gave us.
