Sorry Benjamin Franklin and James Madison…

…and then the source of education shifted from the academy to corporate news, knowledge was replaced with propaganda, and the people remained forever pitted against one another for the pleasure of their masters.

“A nation of well informed (people) who have been taught to know and prize the rights (with which they were born) cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.” – Benjamin Franklin

“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives” – James Madison
