talitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers.... The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth."

"A general State education is a mere contrivance for moulding people to be  exactly like one another; and as the mould in which it casts them is that which  pleases the dominant power in the government, whether this be a monarch, an  aristocracy, or a majority of the existing generation; in proportion as it is  efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by  a natural tendency to one over the body."

"I want to make one thing clear. This war against our constitution is not being  fought way off in Madagascar or in Mandalay. It is being fought here—in our  schools, our colleges, our churches, our women’s clubs. It is being fought with  our money, channeled through the State Department. It is being fought  twenty-four hours a day—while we remain asleep. How many of you Senators know  what the UN is doing to change the teaching of the children in your own home  town? The UN is at work there, every day and night, changing the teachers,  changing the teaching materials, changing the very words and tones—changing all  the essential ideas which we imagine our schools are teaching to our young  folks. How in the name of Heaven are we to sit here, approve these programs,  appropriate our own people’s money—for such outrageous “orientation” of our own  children, and of the men and women who teach our children, in this Nation’s  schools?"
