2 thoughts on “Mistaken for Patriotism – Alexander Hamilton

  1. A truth then and now . . . I’ve always admired much about Alexander Hamilton, It’s wonderful so many people are learning more about him now, thanks to Lin-Manuel Miranda and his brilliant construction of Hamilton 🙂

    1. In a similar vein, from Lao Tsu:

      When the great Way is lost
      There is ‘benevolence and rectitude’.
      When cleverness appears
      There is ‘great ritual’.
      When the family is not harmonious,
      There is ‘filial piety’.
      “When the state is in chaos
      There are ‘loyal’ ministers.”
