how did "elite" leaders (such as monarchs) wish to use or benefit from intellectuals in their societies? & how controlled them via religion?
like they needed them or why not just kill them and have mostly stupid people leftover? or how religions such as Christianity and Islam, etc helped keep them in line? (where they could turn the deluded , much less intellectual masses against them much easier without religion?) was religion like a "weapon " used by popes and monarchs to keep the intellectuals under ransom by the less intellegine deluded masses? how and why not just kill them all?
