Note 7

Teaching a subject without explaining its origins, its controversies, its usages, and more importantly its relevance to the learner’s pressing needs is an insult to education and wisdom. But much worse than this is misleading people into thinking that they have learned something useful, worthwhile, and vital when in fact it is not so. The mind-blind educated masses are a far worse catastrophe than uneducated country peasants….at least the peasants have their rural wisdoms and empirical traditions.
