Stańczyk the most famous court jester in Polish history.

Chris Hedges in TruthDig called Why the United States Is Destroying Its Education System:

Thought is a dialogue with one’s inner self. Those who think ask questions, questions those in authority do not want asked. They remember who we are, where we come from and where we should go. They remain eternally skeptical and distrustful of power. And they know that this moral independence is the only protection from the radical evil that results from collective unconsciousness.

The capacity to think is the only bulwark against any centralized authority that seeks to impose mindless obedience.
