   "We would say, "No civilized state should have citizens too
   ignorant to participate in government," and this statement is
   but a step to the fact: that no state is civilized which has
   citizens too ignorant to help rule it. Or, in other words,
   education is not a prerequisite to political
   control---political control is the cause of popular

       - W. E. B. Du Bois
