“Those who know the least, obey the best”

"Those who know the least, obey the best” is a saying that has been printed on many images. The saying is often applied to government.

“Tis a constant maxim amongst us, that those who know the least, obey the best” was printed in the play The Recruiting Officer (1706) by Irish dramatist George Farquhar (1677-1707).


Wikipedia: George Farquhar
George Farquhar (1677 – 29 April 1707) was an Irish dramatist. He is noted for his contributions to late Restoration comedy, particularly for his plays The Constant Couple (1699), The Recruiting Officer (1706) and The Beaux’ Stratagem (1707).

Those who know the least obey the best. Farquhar Those without knowledge are easy to control and to take advantage of. When knowledge is looked at from this vantage point, you can consider acquiring knowledge on various things, as self-defense.

George Farquhar said: Those who know the least, obey the best. Brutal, psychopathic, usury-loving elites know that. Hence: Drugs that kill, toxic water, poison food, dangerous airwaves, phony news anchors, & a liquor store on every corner. Steer clear of those. Be a rebel.
