that occupy the minds of your young peoples,

the character of the next generation."

    Outstanding! All should take notice. Remember...Values are not taken away, they are given up by those who allow it to happen.

    Almost prophetic. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land with its theocratic seminaries (government schools) proves the point of the quote very well.

    Thus compulsory education by the state. Tell me the prevailing sentiments of the young, and I will tell you the curriculum of the state.

    Collectivism is the creed of state education breeding dependence, irresponsibility, servitude, authoritarianism and envy. Blame, blame, blame. Do Americans even want to produce anything anymore?
     -- E Archer, NYC
