Watching the tv mini-series John Adams i’m astounded by our barbarism. Our infant America was a violent place of insolent British ex-pats centered in Boston. And were treated with equal violence and arrogance by the British Empire. Its a wonder either country survived.

“Most men are evil and weak and viscous and are in great need of restraint.” -John Adams

I love this series. I hope it wins more Emmys than Paul Giamatti can carry.
