Tocqueville on the University

“When I think of the passions of men of our day,

the extent of their enlightenment,

their laborious and steady habits,

the mildness of their morality,

the purity of their religion,

the restraint that almost all

the softness of their mores,

preserved in vice

as in virtue.”

“I do not fear that in their chiefs they will find tyrants, but rather schoolmasters. …”


According to me

“Pop art, pop religion, egalitarianism;

all that is incorporated in

popular culture and

today’s mass media

leads to following;





“The constitution is being redacted by the university.”
