Knowledge will forever govern ignorance - James Madison

James Madison to W. T. Barry 4 Aug. 1822Writings 9:103 -- 9 "The liberal appropriations made by the Legislature of Kentucky for a general system of Education cannot be too much applauded. A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives." James Madison, The Father of the Constitution Epilogue: Securing the Republic
