"people should be encouraged to pursue education just for the sake of it" - You´re assuming an assumption out of the blue.



I'm not assuming anything, I was just laying down my thesis, which is exactly that maybe we'd benefit more from education as a society if more people got some time to reflect on life as a whole before they get busy worrying about "real life".

There are definitely arguments against this thesis, mostly economic, but I think the non-maximizing side of the problem is still worth entertaining.




Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
