 The harm that is done to education by politics arises chiefly from two sources: first, that the interests of some partial group are placed before the interests of mankind; second, that there is too great of love of uniformity both in the herd and in the bureaucrat.  Of these two evils, the first is at present the greater; but if the first were overcome, the second might become very grave.

-Bertrand Russell, from his 1932 essay on The Reconciliation of Individuality and Citizenship
