I think this is more than simply stupidity. I think I put it best by saying that this is problem of valuing particulars over universals. This is a cultural problem of valuing the result and not the idea. This can be seen far outside of just Thomas Jefferson.

I use the word problem here loosely.

Wait. If the American government was designed around protecting Smokey's universals, then preserving this particular, particular, would be logical.
