Are People Becoming More Selfish Through Education?

Thank you for raising this important question.
Nowadays acquiring knowledge and learning is easier than ever before. The internet is helping people to access more and better information faster and at lower cost. Everybody and in particular those people that can not afford a traditional education benefit from this (by the way, this was the reason for founding 12manage at the time as a free e-learning platform on management).
I believe if a person knows and learns more, it allows her/him to make own decisions, instead of having to rely only on what other people or groups or the media are telling us to believe. History and even present times are full of examples how risky this last thing is.
I am unsure if the above is making people somewhat more individualistic. Could be... But even that should not necessarily make them more selfish. Isn't it the responsibility of each person who acquires knowledge to decide for him/herself how and for what purpose to apply it?
