Quote Number:  886


Source Notes: Misattributed to Thomas Jefferson, likely based on a misreading or paraphrasing a paragraph from Noam Chomsky’s Keeping the Rabble in Line: Interviews with David Barsamian. Common Courage Press: Monroe, Maine. 1994, Pg 245. Chomsky’s book quotes a line from Jefferson’s 1825 to William Branch Giles and then comments with a remark similar to this quote. For further reference see Here from Monticello’s website.
