“It must never be forgotten,” Whitehead declared, “that education is not a process of packing articles in a trunk… Its nearest analogue is the assimilation of food by a living organism.”
…If nothing else, the success of modern propaganda has taught us how naive was Mill’s notion that the free clash of ideas must result in the triumph of truth. Falsehood does not always stick to the rules. We must be on our guard, and we must not venture out of our depth. Objectivity is fine, but one should beware of indifference.
(Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein)
