In an essay written in 1947 he said:

–  it is easy for us to allow our thinking to become dominated by “…half-truths, prejudices, and propaganda.”

–  He criticized educated people in the late 1940s for their lack of logical and scientific thinking. – –  “the press, the classroom, the platform, and the pulpit in many instances do not give us objective and unbiased truths.”

–  “To save man from the morass of propaganda…is one of the chief aims of education.”

–  “Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction.”

–  “Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education.”

–  “If we are not careful, our colleges will produce a group of close-minded, unscientific, illogical propagandists, consumed with immoral acts.  Be careful, “brethren.” Be careful, teachers.”
