Philosophy Wire: Educated. Uneducated. And why we need more of the latter...

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-12-04]:

Educated people. Uneducated people. Who is to blame for the evils in this world?
Who has a greater share of responsibility for what is wrong in this world?

Some people claim that it is the uneducated people who are to be blamed. They do not make the right choices. They do not behave properly. They do not see the bad things happening in their world since they do not have the proper education to think of anything else than their own happiness in their own world. All in all, they do all kinds of bad things just because they are.. uneducated. Or so claim the educated.

But this is far away from the truth.

I wish every person thought only of his happiness in his own world as the uneducated people do. The leaders who have brought us to our current level of ethical demise were all educated.

As Rousseau said,
we need more uneducated people.
More good people.

Listen to Christ and His teachings.
Do not ask him about His diplomas...
