As most of our education is the acquisition of knowledge, it is making us more and more mechanical; our minds are functioning along narrow grooves, whether it is scientific, philosophical, religious, business or technological knowledge that we are acquiring. Our ways of life, both at home and outside it, and our specializing in a particular career, are making our minds more and more narrow, limited and incomplete. All this leads to a mechanical way of life, a mental standardization, and so gradually the State, even a democratic State, dictates what we should become. Most thoughtful people are naturally aware of this, but unfortunately they seem to accept it and live with it. This has become a danger to freedom. —Krishnamurti

This perfectly summarises the greatness of Krishnamurthy. He saw it all and alerted us to the dangers of falling victim to overregulation of our lives. Education at a formal or professional level is a baggage to freethought and rationalism. Read my life experiences here in the United Kingdom:
Unfortunately, when one utters such sentiments, one is marginalised out of the society that one lives in because States need slaves to the system in operation. They deal with issues at a diplomatic level which only deals with material disputes, which get nowhere to the truth of our existence on this Planet as human beings. All State institutions even in a so-called democracy of the United Kingdom including the Media are regulated to political correctness thereby keeping the population in stagnant waters of ignorance as machine tools.
