"...The American people appear to be the most enlightened people in the world"

"...every citizen is taught the doctrines and the evidences of his religion, the history of his country, and the leading features of its Constitution"

"...it is extremely rare to find a man imperfectly acquainted with all of these things, and a person wholly ignorant of them is a sort of phenomenon"

This is certainly not the case today. Is it any wonder that we find ourselves flailing for answers to our problems when we are so ignorant of our history, our Constitution or the moral principles necessary to sustain us?
