Quote from Thomas Hodgskin,

"Men had better be without education than be educated by their rulers; for their education is but the mere breaking in of the steer to the yoke; the mere discipline of the hunting dog, which, by dint of severity, is made to forego the strongest impulse of his nature, and instead of devouring his prey, to hasten with it to the feet of his master."


Thomas Hodgskin (more quotes by Thomas Hodgskin or books by/about Thomas Hodgskin)

(1787-1869) English socialist writer
