Dogged!

“It must be admitted that the tendency of the human race toward liberty is largely thwarted, especially in France. This is greatly due to a fatal desire — learned from the teachings of antiquity — that our writers on public affairs have in common: They desire to set themselves above mankind in order to arrange, organize, and regulate it according to their fancy.”

— Frederic Bastiat

(What’s really great about these historical quotes is that it highlights how we doggedly refuse to learn from the past, and insist on reinventing the wheel every other generation or so. That sort of ignorance is to be expected when government is in charge of education.)
