I love to be educated on a daily bases and this article has done just that. I have never heard of Joel Barlow before but now I have.

His actions have restored my faith…my faith in human beings that is. It makes me feel comforted that no matter the period of history there are men and women of such caliber that they can fight their way through the forest and at last see the wood despite the trees.

Abolish all legal privileges for religion, Barlow wrote, and you will then begin "to tear the bandage from the eyes of mankind, to break the charm of inequality".

How cool is that?
