No society wants you to become wise.
It is against the investment of all societies.
If people are wise...
They can not be exploited.
If they are intelligent, they can not be subjugated, they can not be forced into a mechanical life.
To live a life of robots, they will assert, they will assert their individuality.
They will have the fragrance of rebellion around them.
They would like to live in Freedom.
Freedom comes with wisdom, and no society wants people to be free.
A Communist society. The Fascist society. The Capitalist society. The Hindu, Mandarin, Kasshin*. No society.
Because the moment they start using their intelligence, they become dangerous.
Dangerous to the establishment.
Dangerous to the people who are in power.
Dangerous to the heads.
Dangerous to all kinds of oppression, exploitation, suppression.
Dangerous to the churches.
Dangerous to the States.
Dangerous to the Nations.
In fact, a wise man is a "fire" a "light" a "flame"
But he can not save his life, he can not serve them.
He would like rather to DIE, then to be any SLAVE.
