There are days when I wonder if this sort of thing might be needed in the American South today.  Take over their schools, force their children to attend, and banish all that "evolution is just a theory", "science is this complex thing others impose on you, not something for you to take to heart", and "blindly trust authority, because critical thinking is hard and treasonous" rubbish.
