An educated society has power, which no devious hypocrite will be able to destroy by trying to impose his will. A society in which the level of education is low is more prone to manipulation and to unrealistic promises of populists. Therefore, such a society can be easily manipulated and used by cynical political players and representatives of religious associations or churches. Let’s educate ourselves and the others – May the Force be with us!.
