Noah Webster

January 01, 1700 - January 01, 1700
"But while property is considered as the basis of the freedom of the American yeomanry, there are other auxiliary supports; among which is the information of the people. In no country, is education so general--in no country, have the body of the people such a knowledge of the rights of men and the principles of government. This knowledge, joined with a keep sense of liberty and a watchful jealousy, will guard our constitutions, and awaken the people to an instantaneous resistance of encroachments. "source: "an Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution" October 17, 1787.education, knowledge, power, freedom, rights, balance of power, watchdogs
