Why, despite a person’s inclination to creativity, in traditional and industrial societies only a minority of the population could professionally engage in creativity (creation of new forms of knowledge, social structure, works of art)?
Because a person’s creativity is limited by his direct responsibilities, his work, narrow specialization. Only free people can allow themselves to create, create, express themselves. The average person relies on work in order to feed his family. He buries his talent, does not develop it because of everyday worries, everyday life.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
