Let me quote what I said:

And from Anton....

Seems like it answers at least this question/scenario...

NOT!
The "long time ago" applies. John is correct.
Now I am aware of this I'll make use of it, but the documents I am dealing with were not created in this manner.

Passive acceptance of the teacher's wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man. Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life. It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position.
Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
