Consider what we do to our children. We do not say to them: 'Some people think the earth is round, and others think it is flat; when you grow up, you can, if you like, examine the evidence and form your own conclusion.' Instead of this we say: 'The earth is round.' By the time our children are old enough to examine the evidence, our propaganda has closed their minds... Denken wir einmal daran, was wir mit unseren Kindern machen. Wir sagen ihnen nicht: "Manche Menschen denken, dass die Erde rund ist, und andere, dass sie flach ist; wenn du erwachsen bist, kannst du, wenn du möchtest, die Beweise ansehen und dir selbst eine Meinung bilden." Stattdessen sagen wir: "Die Erde ist rund." Wenn unser Kinder dann einmal alt genug sind, sich die Beweise anzusehen, hat unsere Propaganda bereits ihren Geist verschlossen.
