    Instead of trying to advance their societies they only thought about themselves and their own wants. But even with the reduction of education there is some progress in many of those societies just because people want to learn and do so any way they can find. As an example China has had very ruthless rulers and yet progress was made throughout their history.

    No, it's not the educated that are exploiting the common folk. It's the intellectually dishonest sociopaths. IE the oligarchs. These are the folks who are stockpiling the resources that the common folk could desperately use a share of. And no I don't think folks who choose to steal from the rest of the human race are educated. Steal = choose to not share. By share I mean pay folks who work for your business an honest share of the profits. Treat your customers with respect and quit gouging everybody based on your intellectually dishonest bottom line philosophy. Reduce the sociopathic self centered bullshit. World leaders are prone to this bullshit because they want their share from the oligarchy.

    I'll never say that intellectually dishonest sociopaths are educated. I think the world needs to solve the problem associated with the oligarchy. I'm not saying that these folks haven't been educated, I'm saying, as you are, that they don't care what they learned and want to serve whoever gives them the biggest share. 2nd level sociopaths. LOL. BTW, as you know, the Pope knows what's going on and said so right from the get go. I have great respect for this Pope as a world leader. To bad nobody listens to him. I respect Catholicism for not trying to shove the dogma down your throat as the fundamentalists do. All the fundamentalists regardless what they call themselves.

    It would be a mistake to whitewash the role of religion in these events.

    Lets say we begin with medical, which includes psychological as well. If a society teaches about how to prevent certain diseases then that society will benefit by not contracting the diseases that it learned about and taught about in schools. How to do surgery, how to give the right medications and dispense good advice to those who suffer from depression will only make a society better and not hurt it.

    Medical: I believe most doctors without border are christians and Jews, they go into unfriendly territory to help the needy

    Yes but the nations they help don't allow for their own citizens to teach and educate others in their country. That hurts everyone in that country , do you understand that?

    And Muslims. MSF is agnostic when it comes to the religion of their doctors, and in Islamic areas, a lot of their doctors are Muslim.

    Then you would be wrong, They don't wear their religion on their sleeves, in fact they may be of a religion or not nobody knows, their main creed is Independent. Neutral. Impartial. I think you will find that they are most likely humanist, first and foremost.

    Much of it is. And much of it is done through secular organizations like MSF.
