Quote of the Day - liberty and ignorance

A quote of the day from one of my favorite Founding Fathers while I read the latest Toledo Public Schools audit and management letter which, surprisingly, got very little local news coverage:

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffusd and Virtue is preservd. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauchd in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders." ~ Samuel Adams
