Esolen: Stick to the Facts

“If what you want is industrial production, cheap and plentiful, and if human beings are to be cogs and gears in the industrial machine, then of course you will want to stick to flat unimaginative Facts. A cog should not go soft, musing about the clouds in the sky. A gear should never wonder what it would feel like to turn backwards.”

– Anthony Esolen, Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child (p. 1)
