Ok well no need for military interventions then!
Without maths they wont be able to handle any complex weapon systems!
Social Darwinism will take care of them not the military.
I admit that is hilarious, and in some sense it is also true. Certain aspects of their "state" will suffer greatly because of policies of this
nature. Mostly those things that actually require understanding the inner workings of highly complex systems. And these problems will be confounded in
later generations, if they actually succeed in establishing their state, which is unlikely. You can teach someone to operate a system, and even to fix
certain aspects of complex systems, but if they truly want to create a state that can survive they will need educated individuals. So either they will
have to rewrite their policies to allow people to go to school overseas or something, if they can actually get into a foreign country, or they will be
reduced to relying on less complex systems and their problems will only increase with time.
On a side note, your avatar gives me nightmares. I wake up covered in sweat sometimes after dreaming that the furry little ewoks have come to murder
me. I don't understand a word they're saying either. I tried to pet one the first time, because I always try to pet anything furry, and I will just
say that didn't work out very well.
