All University education does not turn philosophy into folly, science into superstition and art into pedantry. :-)

    But Shaw certainly puts another reality to that previous quote about suppression of freedom being most abominable in a university. Only morons believe that -- and they'd stand by and wring their hands and pull their hair while people got locked up and beaten for expressing themselves.
