A Paradox

“We are faced with the paradoxical fact that education has become one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.”

Bertrand Russell, Philosopher (1872-1970)


Anyone interested in arguing against that stance?

    I guess it depends on how you define education – going to school, teaching yourself, learning from your parents, watching tv all day, etc. and then it depends on how you define intelligence – book smart, street smart, a whiz with numbers or programming. a gifted musician, etc.
