Education == National Defence

Education is not a routine activity which is divorced from national defense. It is, in the most fundamental and important sense, the first line of national defense.

A quote from the former mayor of Chicago, snapped inside a display at the Chicago Public Library. Jeremy recommended that I take a picture of it for Jason. It’s a bit disturbing to think about education being a branch of national defence, but I suppose a good education could be a defence against just about anything. Right?
