Fire your incompetent fact checker AGAIN. Society was different in many ways but the structure was not. The rish were primarily farmowners - not the aristocracy of Europe - and the Marxian concept of "exploitation" was debunked before you were born. No evidence exists that Jefferson "raped" anyone. In fact, no evidence exists that he (as opposed to his male relatives) ever had sex with any slaves, And the evidence is overwhelming that welfare in all faorms has been economically detrimental. Without them even the poor would be better off.
