    Education doesent necessarily have to mean school, but you get educated all the time from other people. Kant didnt say that you shouldnt listen to what others say, so you can still educate yourself from them, but the point of this education should be you learning to think on your own, rather than just learning behavioral patterns from others.

    Ayup. If you've got the time to read a bunch of philosophy going back to the classical era, digest it, form your own detailed philosophical variant, and then write entire books about it, chances are real good that you were born into wealth and affluence.

    Personally I think Kant has some good and some bad ideas. Like the categorical imperative? Not a fan. I don't believe in absolutes, as they tend to be the result of dogmatism or naivety, and can result in absolute insanity. But Kant's idea that if one can't prove or disprove something definitively -- as the case is with most ideas -- it is acceptable to ask 'What would be the benefits of believing in one idea vs. another idea?' And then believing in one idea or another based on the answer. That's good stuff!
