Where The Press Is Free

The subtext of this quote is the importance of education. If you can’t make sense of the information available to you, if you are limited to having others interpret it for you, you are a slave.


“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be…The people cannot be safe without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.”

-Thomas Jefferson
