George Washington: America-Hating Socialist

Good article about George Washington’s Administration, it’s economic policies, and the tendency to conflate “capitalism” (meaning our current syndicalist system) and “America” or “democracy”.  Puts me in mind of an Abraham Lincoln quote a colleague recently used on Facebook:  “The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty. Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty.”
