Title
There can be no patriotism without liberty, no liberty without virtue, no virtue without citizens, create citizens and you have everything you need. Without them, you will have nothing but debased slaves, from the rulers of the State downwards. To form citizens is not the work of a day; and in order to have men it is necessary to educate them when they are children --Jean Jacques Russeau on Education for Citizenship. From the series Great Ideas of Western Man.
