Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Max Stirner

If one awakens in men the idea of freedom then the free men will incessantly go on to free themselves; if, on the contrary, one only educates them, then they will at all times accommodate themselves to circumstances in the most highly educated and elegant manner and degenerate into subservient cringing souls. What are our gifted and educated subjects for the most part? Scornful, smiling slave-owners and themselves slaves.


Max Stirner, “The False Principles of Our Education,” Rheinische Zeitung (1842)
