Neglecting Love And Adoration For Knowledge

Many universities of the olden times catered much to the needs of the educational prospects of the elite classes. Knowledge in fact never ceases to exist.It grows to limits beyond our imagination and conceptual thinking. Knowledge increases by leaps and bounds only when it is given away to more and more people. However there is a noted decrease in the craving for more knowledge .Intellectual literacy is losing ground.The colleges and other educational institutions cater to the limited needs of individuals only and fail to grab needed attention and attainment of higher standards in education and academic elegance.

What you say is the truth and it saddens me. It not only saddens me but saddens many people that i know. I find it disheartening to realize that people are only seeing value in vocational training. Yes that is true, we need it to get work, however, in order to form a good view of the world, we need to have a liberal arts education. Citizens need to be aware of when the wool is being pulled over their eyes. I have seen educated people and non educated people. It is a sad truth, that non educated people cannot form good arguments for their cause, and seem to have a difficult time understanding concepts. When pundits are verbally assaulting one another an uneducated person usually answers 'kick his arjse', instead of formulating an intelligent response. I want liberal arts back, and Universities to cater to the poor. Education is important, very very important.

Nothing is indeed free in this world, if you want something, you'll have to give up something else for it. If you want to excell in something you'd have to allot more time for it, more effort, more passion. We cannot have everything in this world, that is the greatest equalizer.

I guess it is not the neglect or lack of interest to gain knowledge but the amount that one will need to be able to pay for the universities. It is getting more expensive each year and not all can afford to pay for such high tuition fees.
