KNOWLEDGE AND FREEDOM
Knowledge protects, ignorance
Bertrand Russel as quoted in: Chomsky, Noam (1972c) Problems of Knowledge
and Freedom. London: Pantheon. :
"... all moral culture springs solely and immediately from
the inner life of the soul, and can only be stimulated in human nature,
and never produced by external and artificial contrivances....
Bertrand Russel in: The Science to Save Us from Science
Whatever does not spring from a man's free choice, or is only the
result of instructions and guidance, does not enter into his very being,
but still remains alien to his true nature; he does not perform it with
truly human energies, but merely with mechanical exactness."
"Meantime, the world in which we exist has other aims. But it will
pass away, burned up in the fire of its hot passions: and from its ashes
will spring a new and younger world, full of fresh hope, with the light
of morning in its eyes."
"But all who are not lunatics are agreed about certain things:
That it is better to be alive than dead, better to be adequatly fed than
starved, better to be free than a slave. Many people desire these
things only for themselves and their friends; they are quite content
that their enemies should suffer. These people can be refuted by science:
Mankind has become so much one family that we cannot insure our own prosperity
except by insuring that of everyone else. If you wish to be happy yourself,
you must resign to seeing others also happy.
Whether science can continue, and whether, while it continues,
it can do more good than harm, depends upon the capacity of mankind
to learn this simple lesson. Perhaps it is necessary that all should
learn it, but it must be learned by all who have great power, and among
those some still have a long way to go.
