"Expecting schools to instill a respect for liberty is like expecting churches to instill a respect for Satan. The first lesson every child learns as they are dragged through the school gates for the first time is that they are the property neither of themself, nor of their family, but of the State which compels them to years of degrading institutionalisation, and that they will only be allowed to live a reasonable life if they are sufficiently compliant and collect sufficient scraps of paper which bear testament to that compliance"
