Or in this case quotes.
I took a much need break from studying and popped over to Weer’d Beard’s abode. He has a post up about yet another child being suspend from school for having a “weapon”. This poor kid actually was only in possession of air, but it was enough to make the folks at the school react.
In the comments section was this reply…
Rob Crawford says: “The criminalization of thought is one of the most abusive forms of tyranny. To punish a kid for his imagination is to admit you want to create mindless, spiritless drones.”
and then this…
Rob Crawford says: “I think the lesson is “don’t think, don’t imagine, don’t try to be anything but what we tell you to be”.
Do exactly what we tell you, no questions asked. Doesn’t matter why, just to do or pay the price. These people want to create mindless followers. Mindless, unarmed followers.
