And here`s bit of my personal philosophy... simply to inaugurate...
Knowledge and power.
Acquiring a hidden, novel or special knowledge leads you to a direct end... that is the purpose and the use this knowledge will have thereafter, both
for you and every other being. At this very moment that you realise having acquired the key to the secret room where no one as ever got, there, and at
the same time, you acquire power... as you are in the possession of a new piece of information which will give you plenty of new choices -or
liberties- that will affect your future condition, and might or mght not affect the one of other people, depending whom this information will concern.
The freedom of choice is the liberty to sovereignly decide between two or many options, options that are directly determined by the knowledge you
possess concerning a specific situation. Therefore, if knowledge is essentially the key which gives someone`s freedom of choice, then the CONTROL
(operated by alteration, division or modification of the information) of knowledge from one individual to the other, as from one group of individuals
to the rest of society, leads to the alienation of freedom of choice by the first party to the second party. Most education systems throughout history
dependent on such alienation of knowledge, leading to an alienation of freedoms, with variating legitimacy and purpose. In some cases of teaching
knowledge, control is a necessity linked to age (as most childrens are unable to contain and comprehend some complex informations that adults deal
with everyday), while in some other cases, control is used to generate and reproduce social stratification and cultural, economic and political
In our so called "democracies", where an equalistic electoral system is supposedly protecting citizens from the tyranny of the Few, control of
knowledge is used systematically to drain the political freedoms from the masses, both by education policies, mass media, state policy, Law and
religion, as all of these social structures are collaborating for a systematic control of all of the information which circulates through the masses,
as they are the fundamental "mediums" by which information are validated, codified and then transmitted to the masses. No matter if this information
is to the concern of a few individuals or billions of humans, the people within these organisations of systematical control will NEVER, ever, consent
give it away as the control of information is the very basis, the IMPLICIT basis, of their purpose and role in society. Without control, they are
nothing... only machines without software to make them work... or at least it is how they see themselves, as it is the same control of knowledge (to
which they are victims too!) that blinds them from knowing that "there IS a world outhere", that outside of their boxes, life is happening by itself
(some call it "NATURE"), and it`s their own CHOICE to live it or not... So the alienators too are alienated from knowledge.
But it is up to every person on this planet to make the choice, because everyone STILL has this choice, to willingly collaborate, freely and without
any prejudicial discrimination, with other people to the development of a shared knowledge, and a shared, public, way to discover, seek out this
knowledge in order to share it with the community of humans. As secrecy is power, but alienation at the same time, sharing is the very basis of true
liberty. If State cannot give us the POWER TO DECIDE SEVOREIGNLY, then it is to all humans responsability and aspiration -if they want to live in a
free and democratic world- to create this power, or to take it back from the hands that stolen it, and share it...
