James Madison on the Need for the American People to Inform Themselves to Prevent Despotism

"Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives."
-- James Madison (1751-1836), U.S. president;(letter to W.T. Barry, August 4, 1822).

Check out the "Read these to be informed" links in the left hand column to "arm yourself with the power which knowledge gives" as President Madison recommended. Let's make this a nation of the people, for the people and by the people again. Knowledge is power.
