“I think by far the most important bill in our whole code is that for the diffusion of knowledge among the people . . . Let our countrymen know that the people alone can protect us against these evils [tyranny, oppression, etc.] and that the tax which will be paid for this purpose is not more than the thousandth part of what will be paid to kings, priests and nobles who will rise up among us if we leave the people in ignorance.”
–Thomas Jefferson to George Wythe, August 13, 1786
