How Like a Philosopher!

The most valuable advice a philosopher may give to one, is to tell him/her not to engage in the pursuit of wisdom. A philosopher has the duty to stop people from philosophising, this is the most moral action a philosopher can do for people (Just as a traveller who discovered a land of plague has the duty to warn his fellow people not to walk towards this land). Philosophy is dangerous, for it segregates you from society, forces you to resent the common man, and suffer in the deepest melancholy for the rest of your life. Become religious instead, and stay safe, healthy and joyful.

Yet what happens in reality is that a philosopher will encourage those who are engaged, for they too are selfish, they wish for an ideal world, how paradoxical!
