Defending Against Tyranny

We must study and learn for ourselves the principles laid down in the Constitution which have preserved our freedoms for the last two hundred years. If we do not understand the role of government and how our rights are protected by the Constitution, we may accept programs or organizations that help erode our freedoms. An informed citizenry is the first line of defense against anarchy and tyranny.

-Ezra Taft Benson, former Secretary of Agriculture(1953-1961) and past President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints(1985-1994). Quoted in A Glorious Standard page 105.
