What Lies Ahead

An interesting passage from the book Adams vs. Jefferson: The Tumultuous Election of 1800

“The earth belongs to the living and no generation should be bound by the decisions of its predecessors, Jefferson told Adams. Stability is crucial and is reinforced by obedience to old laws and charters so that uniformity ‘becomes a national Habit,’ Adams responded.” P. 77

I'm sure I will come back to this in the future. It is something to think about though.
