The best way to secure freedom is to provide education for people, the best way to ensure tyranny will arise is to keep the people ignorant.

I'm almost with you Erasmus.
What does 'provide education for people' mean to you. Basic K-12 ?

In response to “I'm almost with you Erasmus. What does...

Education must be available and accessible, not only k-12 plus universities but also freedom of the press, access to books of all subjects. Too many governments attempt to limit access to books, teaching, or even primary education for some or all of their people.

I only hope that the current governmental climate in the US doesn't go down the path of limiting access. I am concerned about both sides, certain 'liberals' claiming some books are unfit to be read; and some 'conservatives' claiming that certain new outlets and media sources should be shut down.

Very dangerous talk on both sides.

Yours is a liberal rant Erasmus.
And, it's libs looking to control media. Trump was referencing the fact that some news outlets are not media at all! They're simply progressive agenda builders and making up news does not qualify as a media outlet.

A newscast about the efforts or results of any politician is far less about the individual news story itself — the content — and more about the change in public attitude towards the event that the newscast engenders by the fact that such actions are in effect being brought into the home to watch over dinner.

If you think stopping 'fake news' is in the best interest of education and liberty then my concern is for the welfare of your offspring.

Did you ever read that children's story about the kid that cried 'wolf', too many times? Read it again, and take notes this time.

You're welcome.
Your posts 1) never disappoint or 2) are always first-rate. How one chooses to describe your efforts says much about that person wouldn't you say?
