Domesticating the Human Mind

You are free to think independently, so long as you can justify your independent thought with historical precedent and the appropriate application of predefined rules of logic.  Think for yourself, but make sure you cite your sources.  The college classroom is just another venue for propaganda, helping to ensure that the machine has the right kind of friction, helping to weed out the outliers that could cause potential damage to the system’s smooth operation. 

And even nonconformity becomes a kind of participation, a service to the system, a lubricant to ensure the gears remain sharp.
