"One of the serious results of propaganda is that it has caused the public to think that education and propaganda are the same thing, and thus to make an ignorant multitude believe it is being educated when it is only being manipulated. Education aims at independence of judgement. Propaganda offers ready-made opinions for the unthinking herd."
by:
Everett Dean Martin
(1880-1941) American minister, writer, journalist, instructor, lecturer, social psychologist, social philosopher, advocate of adult education

    Weak...since public education is only suppose to be for economics, ie reading writing and math, the rest is ALL propaganda. Public education started at the beginning of the Industrial revolution and it's only purpose is economics.
