Will, if slave breeding farms happened in history, it is for sure a shameful thing.

I don’t know much about Jefferson or US history. Maybe he is guilty of the things you are saying.

But dwelling on it might distract from, or even discredit by association, a message of his which is incredibly relevant to our current economic difficulties

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.... I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
