John Randolph of Roanoke is one of the more important political figures in American history. His thoughts on foreign policy, government, and society are worth studying, but it was his status as an aristocrat that should have everyone take notice. Randolph “loved liberty,” and it was his independence achieved by being a planter that made liberty possible. Randolph the aristocrat was different than Jeff Bezos the aristocrat. I discuss why this is important in Episode 83 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
