Alexander Hamilton ( 1755-1804 ) was Chief of Staff to Gen. George Washington in the American War of Independence. He later became Treasury Secretary in President Washington's Cabinet.
During the War of Independence he wrote from his headquarters : " Our countrymen have all the folly of the ass, and all the passiveness of the sheep. They are determined not to be free ".
The same can be said of 90 ( or is it 95% ? ) Indians . I often say that they do not have brains but gobar ( cow dung ) and bhoosa ( straw ) in their heads.
