“To consider what they ought to do and to take the reverse of that as what they would assuredly do” – Thomas Jefferson.

I am listening to the book American Spinx by Joseph Ellis. It is about Jefferson.

In the book Ellis talks about a rule Jefferson had for dealing with the British and his mistrust of them toward the former colonies during this time. I believe he could have used this to describe most of WSB.

Excerpt from the book, in the chapter discussing Jeffersons’s time in Paris between 1784-89:

“Jefferson claimed he had an infallible rule for deciding what that nation, England, would do on every occasion. It was a simple rule namely, “To consider what they ought to do and to take the reverse of that as what they would assuredly do”. He claimed that by adopting this formula he was never deceived.”

In my opinion, Jefferson was Theta Gang

Good luck to all in 2022
