III. Dedication or Servitude
...But a nation must absorb all those born in its midst, nor can it expel any of them later except by execution or exile. Moreover, members admitted to a community at birth cannot be given a free choice of their premisses; they have to be educated in some terms or other, without consultation of any preference of their own. In these circumstances the sense of obligation, by which the Social Contract is sealed, cannot but be firmly guided if not induced altogether by educational influence.

Короче, мы тебя научим свободу любить и демократией дышать!
