Time after time,
history demonstrates that when people
don’t want to believe something,
they have enormous skills of ignoring it altogether.
History shows that there is nothing so easy to enslave and
nothing so hard to emancipate as ignorance,
hence it becomes the double enemy of civilization.
By its servility it is the prey of tyranny,
and by its credulity it is the foe of enlightenment.
Lemuel K. Washburn
No matter how big the lie;
repeat it often enough and
the masses will regard it as the truth.
John F. Kennedy
Nothing in the world is more dangerous
than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Ignorance is ultimately
the worst enemy of a people who want to be free.
He who stands for nothing will fall for anything.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
