"A popular Government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own Governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives." -- James Madison, President of the United States
