Jiddu Krishnamurti on Education

We look at conditions prevailing in the world and observe what is happening there – the student’s riots, the class prejudices, the conflict of black against white, the wars, the political confusion, the divisions caused by nationalities and religions.

We are also aware of conflict, struggle, anxiety, loneliness, despair, lack of love, and fear. Why do we accept all this?

Why do we accept the moral, social environment knowing very well that it is utterly immoral; knowing this for ourselves – not merely emotionally or sentimentally but looking at the world and at ourselves – why do we live this way? 

Why is it that our educational system does not turn out real human beings but mechanical entities trained to accept certain jobs and finally die? 

Education, science and religion have not solved our problems at all.

Looking at all this confusion, why does each one of us accept and conform, instead of shattering the whole process in ourselves?
