Topic: The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.

Certainly, education's goals are further thah these mentioned by President Kennedy. Among others, they are to develop people's critical reasoning, allow people to discover their habilities and talents and make people capable of resolving problems. As MTC told, the dissemination of truth is a very questionable aim of education, so I agree only with the first goal of education listed by the President.

This stanza from a longer poem called "The Children's Song" is a perfect example of why when reading Kipling we should not throw the baby out with the bathwater. The complete poem can be found at http://www.poetryloverspage.com/poets/kipling/childrens_song.html. The first two stanzas read:

Land of our Birth, we pledge to thee
Our love and toil in the years to be;
When we are grown and take our place,
As men and women with our race.

Father in Heaven who lovest all,
Oh help Thy children when they call;
That they may build from age to age,
An undefiled heritage.

This is nothing compared to "A Song of the White Men" which reads like Nazi propaganda. When we rightfully praise isolated passages from Kipling we should be aware of the less than laudable context.


I agree with you, but that's not the case of commenting about the writer's work, but about just a passage written. Everybody has something good which is praiseworthy. In Kipling's case the stanza which was the quote of today.

I think it happens, but it takes time, much time depending on the intensity of that love.
