Here’s the Truth

It is not by setting up polling-booths, but by setting up schools and making literature and knowledge universally accessible, that he way is opened from servitude and confusion to that willingly co-operative state which is the modern ideal…Until a man has an education, a vote is a useless and dangerous thing for him to possess. The ideal community towards which we move is not a community of will simply; it is a community of knowledge and will, replacing a community of faith and obedience.
