Modern beliefs or social norms cannot be applied to historical people. They are to be judged in the context of their day.
In the 1700's, the rulers of the various people of the world were so much less enlightened than the Founding Fathers, it's not even worth discussion. Tell me how the continentals, Arabs, or various Asian groups lived under their princes, sheiks, sultans, Chiefs, or kings. Law was brutal and arbitrary.
Comments like from this thing above are out of ignorance and stupidity. It's a cancer on our society and should be pushed back on for what it is: ignorance, idiocy, and HATE!
Everything we have in our modern city is rooted in those founders and the inventions and achievements of Western Man. The great so out ways anything that detracts that what this fool and the bat**** left are doing with their self-flagellation is akin to complaining that the paintings in the Sistine Chapel are awful because there was no toilet paper in the restroom down the hall.
