« The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers. » –Thomas Jefferson 
 
« Most Americans have no idea that what we are fed by the news media is nothing more than a portrayal of what powerful corporations want us to believe, that what happens to pass as education is as often as not mere propaganda, that what we learn in church may have very little or nothing to do with the truth, that what our parents teach us may be nothing more than an accumulation of their own personal biases, no doubt a rather subtle modification of what they were taught by their parents. And through such a process, governments and nations around the world wield control as to what their citizens, believe, value, and do. » –  Doug Soderstrom
« And there are people still in darkness,
And they just can’t see the light.
If you don’t say it’s wrong then that says it right. «
