Thomas Jefferson to William Smith in a manuscript letter:

Paris Nov. 13. 1787.

[ Talking about the Shay's Rebellion in Massachusetts] ...
the British ministry have so long hired their
gazetteers to repeat and model into every form lies about our being in
anarchy, that the world has at length believed them, the English
nation has believed them, the ministers themselves have come to
believe them, & what is more wonderful, we have believed them
ourselves. yet where does this anarchy exist? where did it ever exist,
except in the single instance of Massachusets? and can history produce
an instance of a rebellion so honourably conducted? I say nothing of
it's motives. they were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. god
forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. the people
cannot be all, & always, well informed. the past which is wrong will
be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they
misconceive; if they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a
lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. we have had
13. states independant 11. years. there has been one rebellion. that
comes to one rebellion in a century & a half for each state. what
country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? &
what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not
warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of
resistance? let them take arms. the remedy is to set them right as to
facts, pardon & pacify them. what signify a few lives lost in a
century or two? the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to
time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is it's natural manure.

peace, pot, and microdot!

"Early man walked away
As modernman took control
There mind's weren't all the same
And to conquer was their goal
So he built his great empire
And he slaughtered his own kind
He died a confused man
And killed himself in his own mind"
