Was it Voltaire, who grabbed the baby out of the mother’s arms and said, “Tell me everything you know?”
I’ve been trying to figure out why there is so little interest in understanding Freedom, and knowing about the history of this Nation. Why there is so little objection to the tax-supported school system. Why young children have no idea where a tomato comes from. Why they know who lives in a pineapple house in the ocean, but do not know who lives in the White House. Why a ten year old, knows how to kick a soccer or football, but has no idea how to plant and grow a seed. Why my 20-year old nephew in college called home to find out how to put a quarter in a washing machine.
