I will watch/read when I have time. In the meanwhile, let me say that a number of America's founders, themselves, were influenced by Enlightenment thinking. John Weaver says George Washington wore the small ponytail to signify his own influence by the Enlightenment.
Does that mean that courageous bulletproof George Washington was not a Christian giant? No. George Washington spent one hour reading the Bible and praying on his knees in the morning, and one hour, likewise, in the evening.
However, America, most certainly should not be looking back to the old World for guidance. White Americans are the world's leaders; the best and brightest.
Still no reason to pick on Germany's great leader.
