Freedom is Slavery

"Scientific societies are as yet in their infancy. . . . It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have even in totalitarian countries. Fitche laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished. . . ": Bertrand Russell, "The Impact of Science on Society", 1953, pg 49-50"
"Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains."
: Jean-Jacques Rousseau - (1712-1778) Political philosopher, educationist and essayist -Source: The Social Contract
"Liberty is rendered even more precious by the recollection of servitude.": Marcus Tullius Cicero - (106-43 B.C.) Roman Statesman, Philosopher and Orator
"No man survives when freedom fails, The best men rot in filthy jails, And those who cry 'appease, appease' Are hanged by those they tried to please.": Hiram Mann
