The purpose of education is to create better human beings. Compared to our predecessors, with all the systems and unlimited source of knowledge we have today, have we made the world a better place to live in?

if we believe that we can learn from everything in our surrounding, i think we can say that war is also a form of education.

Hi web admin,

Before answering the question asked, I think you should answer these questions first:

What do you mean by “education” and which “education” do you want to discuss here?

Hello Theremin, thank you for your response.

What we mean by “education” here is education in general term – the formal and informal education. Because we believe that wether you learn something from school/ institution or at your home/surroundings, the knowledge that you absorb are all connected and will influence your mind, emotion and act.

We are also open to any suggestions and point of views from our viewers about our education and its relation to the world we live in today.

If education in general term means in many form of education, is war an education too?

First, what do you mean by “war”? Is it physical war or war on thoughts? And in what sense the term “war” you mentioned here belong to some kind of form of education?

Because, in my argument, any physical war is NEVER projected for the betterment of mankind; while education, on the opposite, has its one and only purpose that is for the betterment of mankind. So, war is definitely NOT a form of education.

I think we still have a lot to work on.
Indeed, we have seen a lot of improvement, lots of technology that can help us (at least make our lives easier), lots of innovation, but are those the indication that we – humans – make this world a better place to live in? Have we reach our “ideal” world?

See what happened in the world now, I am pessimistic that education can lead a human life to be better and people believe that education is the way to earn a modern life to differs to the past. I think we have to have a new thought about education where human must learn to be human.

Have we made the World a better place to live in? Yes! Of course. At least in some ways. To say that the World we currently live in is worse than the old World where people died of (more prevalent) War and Disease is, to put it mildly, condescending. Luddite, even. As if you’re saying that everything in the World that has ever happened is just simply bad, bad, bad. That is a very negative and very pessimistic view of life and I refuse to live my life so awfully. And yes, people have learned from experience and education. Some… Read more »
