The pursuit of knowledge and intellectual accomplishment has stood at the center of society throughout the ages, and this is something which has improved society and urged change and advancement. While the existence of an independent academia has been prevalent in societies across the globe, often it is the intellectual establishment that provides the leadership – both lay and religious – that stands at the helm. Religious leadership has flourished in different societies. Of course, there are those where it flourished more, and other cultures where is flourished less. Look at the flourishing of the Kabbalah Centre, for an example of something that has flourished in our times.
