Propaganda And Education

“The only difference between ‘propaganda’ and ‘education,’ really, is in the point of view. The advocacy of what we believe in is education. The advocacy of what we don’t believe in is propaganda.”

~ Edward Bernays


The founding fathers in their wisdom decided that children were an unnatural strain on parents. So they provided jails called schools, equipped with tortures called education. School is where you go between when your parents can’t take you and industry can’t take you.

– John Updike


“Suddenly degrees aren’t worth anything. Isn’t that true? When I was a student, if you had a degree, you had a job. If you didn’t have a job it’s because you didn’t want one. And I didn’t want one, frankly.”

– Ken Robinson


A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but
if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.

-Theodore Roosevelt


Education is an ornament
for the prosperous, a refuge
for the unfortunate.



Education is like alcohol; some people can’t take it.

Maurice Duplessis
April 20, 1890-September 7, 1959
Lawyer, Politician

“I spent three days a week…” – Ray Bradbury

“I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it’s better than college. People should educate themselves – you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had every book in the library and I’d written a thousand stories.”

– Ray Bradbury
