"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can
any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is
preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant,
and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own
weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders."
(1722-1803), was known as the "Father of the American Revolution."
letter to James Warren, 4 November 1775. Reference: Our Sacred Honor, Bennett (261)
