    and in every one where they are free to think

    Does " and in every one where they are free to think" refer to " and in every country where they are free to think"?

    "Men by their constitutions are naturally divided into two
    parties: 1. Those who fear and distrust the people, and wish to
    draw all powers from them into the hands of the higher classes.
    2. Those who identify themselves with the people, have confidence
    in them, cherish and consider them as the most honest and safe,
    although not the most wise depositary of the public interests. In
    every country these two parties exist, and in every one where they are free to think, speak, and write, they will declare
    themselves." --Thomas Jefferson to Henry Lee, 1824.

    Re: and in every one where they are free to think

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
