An uneducated society allows tyranny to rise up because of the failure of the people to remain vigilant in protecting their freedoms. The government becomes unwilling to live up to its promises, or follow the rule of law set up as a standard.
People often search for purpose through government, believing the false promises by their powerful leaders. Then, the government creates emergencies, to better enable the rulers to do things they could not normally do when society is peaceful, and there are no domestic disturbances. As a result of the emergencies, the citizens become eager for stability. They are willing to accept something different than what they had in order to achieve peace and safety. Even statism begins to look attractive, because all the people know is that they yearn for a change from what the citizenry had been experiencing under the prior government in crisis. Without being properly educated and properly informed the public will fall for the wiles of tyranny without even realizing they have literally tied their own noose themselves.
