If you are allowed to begin with the children you have already attained the objective in your country. Peace in the world is only attainable by bringing freedom to it. All war is the result of the presence of tyrants.

Dictators seek to control education. Hitler, Mao, Lenin...We have a long history of trying to achieve some sort of social utopia through education in our history...Mann's common school idea is one of the foundational principles of modern American public education...but what has it gotten us? Children who cannot read and who are as likely, if not more likely, to turn to violence.
