Top Choices from the SCI Library
Ed Dodson, headmaster of the School of Cooperative Individualism, has spent countless hours compiling one of the finest online libraries in the world. Each month we recommend a top article featured in that library.
And now, the selection for January 2001 –
Thomas Jefferson was a complex person of enormous intellect and conviction, yet was a born into a society that enslaved Africans and African-Americans and denied them virtually all fundamental human rights. The contradictions were apparent even to Jefferson but he continued to claim ownership of slaves and forced them to labor on his Monticello estate. Jefferson’s complexity is revealed in his vast correspondence. I have organized Jefferson’s correspondence by subject and added it to the School of Cooperative Individualism’s reference materials. Read what Jefferson had to say on the many important events occurring during his life as well as moral principles.
