Ad bellum purificandum is less ambitious and (to me, anyway) more attainable
than "salvation by knowledge." The former suggests a slow, modest progress
towards reasoned discourse from our Fallen starting point: Punch and Judy
with sticks and bladders.
 
I do believe in "salvation by knowledge," too, but that's a longer-term
enterprise, and I'm not sure KB added much to the Buddha's advice on that
score.
