1776

I’m watching the movie version of the musical 1776 this evening. 

From Ben Franklin, this still-true quote:

“We’ve spawned a new race here, Mr. Dikinson. Rougher, simpler; more violent, more enterprising; less refined. We’re a new nationality. We require a new nation.”

More violent. More enterprising. Less refined. Indeed!
