The preceding text is a comment by Ethanm64, and is not a quotation from John Dewey's Democracy and Education. Ethanm64's commentary was blended into John Dewey's quotation when the characters "+" and "-ecm" were subsequently removed by Omnipaedista at 02:40, 15 August 2010 (UTC).
Today I searched Google for the phrase "mind of chains is to free it of the care of what is acceptable" and found that Ethanm64's commentary is now attributed to John Dewey on several web sites, including in a sermon given at an Episcopal church! Biogeographist (talk) 21:15, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
