So what if the founding fathers didn't know about germs. Nobody else did either.

They *did* know far more about government and history than most folks do these days. They had good reasons for most of the things that people are always finding fault with. A few were practical politics. They were going with what they could get everyone to agree to (like the stuff about slavery).

But most of it is stuff that they put in to avoid *well-known* problems with previous forms of government. Like democracy.

Alas, these days we aren't taught that. And since it's to the advantage of those who'd game the system to keep voters ignorant of that sort of thing, we aren't likely to see such things taught any time soon.
