Minerva leads America in “The Apotheosis of Benjamin Franklin and George Washington”

MINERVA, Goddess of Wisdom leads America in “The Apotheosis of Benjamin Franklin and George Washington.” The Apotheosis of Benjamin Franklin and George Washington is a copperplate-printed toile fabric produced in several colorways in Britain between 1785-1800, after the first defeat of the British Empire. A banner reads “Where Liberty Dwells, There is My Country.”

These are the expressions of AMERICAN REPUBLICANISM that have been taken for granted. We will live out these ideas.

“Man’s achievements rest upon the use of symbols (…) we must consider ourselves as a symbolic, semantic class of life, and those who rule the symbols, rule us.”

ALFRED KORZYBSKI, science and sanity (1933), p. 76
