“You call yourself, if I am not mistaken, a revolutionary. But you are badly mistaken if you think that future revolutions will end in freedom. After five hundred years, the principle of freedom has outlived its usefulness. A pedagogic method that regards itself as a daughter of the Enlightenment and employs educational methods based on criticism, on the liberation and nursing of the ego, on the breaking down of ordained living patterns – such a pedagogy may still achieve moments of rhetorical success, but for those who know and understand, it is, beyond all doubt, sublimely backward. All institutions dedicated to genuine education have always known that there can be only one central truth and pedagogy, and that is: absolute authority and ironclad bond – discipline and sacrifice, renunciation of the ego and coercion of the personality. It is ultimately a cruel understanding of youth to believe it will find its heart’s desire in freedom. Its deepest desire is to obey.”

–From Thomas Mann’s “The Magic Mountain” (1924).
