Alexander Hamilton was a Founding Father, first Secretary of Treasury, a hero of the revolution, chief staff aide to General George Washington, influential in the Constitution, founded the nation’s financial system, founded the Federalist Party, founded the United States Coast Guard, and founded The New York Post newspaper; among other things.

The pro-moderate Whig-like Hamilton favored a strong federal government and tried to promote globalization in terms of trade, supported abolitionism, and favored a central bank long before it was cool.

Hamilton’s character can be contrasted by the pro-French revolution Thomas Jefferson (each figure representing a different type of American liberal, the Federalist and Anti-Federalists respectively).

What is Reason?

Reason is the application of “pure logic”, empirical evidence, experiment, and skepticism to find truths, facts, and theories (AKA “critical thinking”).
