Quote from Kingdom Come


The great institutes of higher learning in Western culture function as the mind of Western culture. They define what is important; they specify procedures to be respected; they set agendas for analysing the problems of the world; they produce the books that get read and that over decades continue to influence thinking over the world—and they do these tasks not only for the people who are aware of their existence, but for us all.

— Mark Noll, as quoted in Kingdom Come by Allen Mitsuo Wakabayashi (p.101)
