Maybe one of the reasons Critical Race Theory has any resonance at all among young people, is because idiots portray defenders of slavery, usury, and colonialism as our intellectual fathers.
Over the 4th of July weekend, Larry Kudlow and numerous other “conservatives” on Fox told us, repeatedly, that Adam Smith was a “rock star” with our founders.

There's only one problem—these two miscreants were the foremost defenders of the British Empire and its slave system, and were hated by Benjamin Franklin and Alexander Hamilton. Our founders fought a revolution against the British imperial system, which was institutionalized by the Bank of England and the British East India Company (both of which John Locke served).
