More wise words from FFF

From yesterday's Email Update from the Future of Freedom Foundation:

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

Wednesday, May 7, 2008 A general State education is a mere contrivance for moulding people to be exactly like one another: and as the mould in which it casts them is that which pleases the predominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, a priesthood, an aristocracy, or the majority of the existing generation, in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by natural tendency to one over the body.
— John Stuart Mill, On Liberty [1859
