One should never expect anything from such a corrupt entity as a nation-state or its subsets. We might at the very least hope for separation of church and state, though "the church" constantly creeps into schools through the many back doors proffered.

This is the very kind of corporate sway that the Occupy movements have sprung up to contest.
