Does being educated make you more moral?


Are smarter people more virtuous? Why or why not? I believe that intelligence, education, and morality are not connected in anyway, but many psychologist and other experts disagree with me. What do you believe?

    In the United States most politicians are greedy, narcissistic lap dogs of corporations. Would you like to trade? Also, you make a great point. It does seem like a lot of people with superior backgrounds do a lot of unethical things.

    You make some great points. it seems that if one is highly educated, one can better explain how one rationalizes conducting evil acts.

    Some people think that the whole human race is just a bunch of hairless apes; however, I have never really listened that much to dung merchants.
