    Yeah, you're right. 18th Century. (After I posted earlier I found the book I'd mentioned because I wanted to make sure I'd remembered it correctly.)

    I think a huge part of the problem, also, is the way our public school system teaches the United State's Consitution. We're teaching 'democracy' with an autocratic teaching approach, and I thinks it's disempowering and completely counterproductive. This is basically the message: "Sit down, shut up, and remember all these facts about why it's so great to live in a free country."

    We (Americans) teach our children what to think but not how to think, thus we are a nation of easily manipulated citizens who quickly respond to emotional frames.
