That escalated rather quickly....
I didn't go to college and chose to work. I really couldn't afford it.
I don't resent those that did. I don't think those that didn't are "losers" for not trying to. I think the whole schooling to find work is just dumb.
You should get training to perform a task. And go to school to learn.
No one is better for doing what is expected of them to survive in a society. You CAN choose not to participate, but then you have to leave and make do
with your choices.
It is like living in a tribe, steeling food, and refusing to do your part. You would be kicked out, shunned or whatever until you left. You would
leave if you didn't like your tribe or the way they handled daily life.
You shouldn't get extra meat for bringing your fair share of meat. You shouldn't get extra leisure time for doing your fair share of work. If you do
more, and the next day you have nothing to do, you can rest more. You hunt for extra meat, then you can have extra meat.
Think of it like a tribe.
You learn when your basic needs are met. You don't learn how to meet those basic needs, those are taught all your life, and you teach them all of
I would say that basic skill sets should be available for people to be able to work, and be taught like was done always through apprenticeship. Then
if you want higher learning, then it's on you.
Learn for the passion of learning, get skills for the purpose of working.
Nothing for free. No applause or special treatment for doing your job.
