„Listen, you can't turn really bright people into robots. You can turn dumb people into robots, but that's true in every society and system.“

—  Ray Bradbury American writer 1920 - 2012

Playboy interview (1996)
Kontext: Listen, you can't turn really bright people into robots. You can turn dumb people into robots, but that's true in every society and system. I don't know what to do with dumb people, but we must try to educate them along with the sharp kids. You teach a kid to read and write by the second grade, and the rest will take care of itself. To solve the drug problem, we have to start at the root — first grade. If a boy has all the toys in his head that reading can give him, and you hook him into science fiction, then you've got the future secured.
