|The Twelve Hours|
[1.6] Now you will ask what have all these done? Yes, I say, among them there are murderers, robbers, thieves, defectors and agitators of the state. There are also a lot of people who have caused great harm to the state by all kinds of frauds; among them, there are those who have seriously violated one or another political or even moral order. Look, the crimes of these unfortunates are revealed, insofar as they can serve as at least an apparent reason.
[1.7] But now we want to raise another question and ask: What is the reason that these people have become such criminals? And if you want to ask someone else about this reason, you will surely get no other answer than that the reason lies either in a neglected upbringing, or - which is one and the same anyway - their parents, pre-parents and grandparents were already thus formed.
[1.8] But I ask again: what was the reason that these people received such a bad education, that a whole generation was neglected in education? You need not reach far at all, and the answer will force itself upon you: The main reason is none other than politics, by virtue of which the ruling class of mankind cares for nothing more than that the subordinates should be kept in all darkness as much as possible, fearing that if the people would receive closer information about Me and thereby also about their own destiny, it would mean the end of their power and their temporal income.
