The Founding Conspiracy


The president informed us recently that the Founders of the nation had some level of paranoia about “distant authority.” Consequently it was no big surprise that Americans today have similar feelings about Washington, D.C. and specifically about himself.

The problem with that statement wasn’t just it’s implication that the Founders were somehow or another “crazy anti-government gun nuts,” it’s that the statement invokes a process known as “consensual bias” to ignore reality and the actual history of Englishmen and Americans.

So how do we approach it? Should we just scream and yell at the President that he is wrong about them and us? Or is there a way to start deconstructing why people fall for the consensual bias version of their own history?
