What do BRs, GE and MLK have in Common? - General Education (GE) at UCLA is using the Borromean Rings (BRs) graphical representation from the 28 May 2004 issue of Science as its logo in association with a short quote from Martin Luther King (MLK) that reads, "To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education. Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction. The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. But education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals."
