"The historian’s first duties are sacrilege and the mocking of false gods.

They are his indispensable instruments for establishing the truth."

"If it would be wrong for the government to adopt an official religion, then,

for the same reasons, it would be wrong for the government to adopt official

education policies. The moral case for freedom of religion stands or falls with

that for freedom of education. A society that champions freedom of religion but

at the same time countenances state regulation of education has a great deal of

explaining to do."

-- James R. Otteson

American philosopher, professor, author




"In all countries, in all centuries, the primary reason for government to set

up schools is to undermine the politically weak by convincing their children

that the leaders are good and their policies are wise. The core is religious

intolerance. The sides simply change between the Atheists, Catholics,

Protestants, Unitarians, etc., depending whether you are talking about the

Soviet Union, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, America, etc. A common second reason

is to prepare the boys to go to war and the girls to cheer them on."

-- Marshall Fritz

(1943 -2008) American libertarian activist, founded the Advocates for Self-Government, and The Alliance for the Separation of School & State
