Karl Marx once said, “Take away a people’s roots, and they can easily be moved.”
Thomas Jefferson said, “A nation has never been ignorant and free; that has never been and will never be.”
James Madison observed, “The diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty….It is universally admitted that a well-instructed people alone can be permanently a free people.”
