Bumping for posterity.

Do points #1 and #2 together mean that funding education is actually a bad idea? Or am I reading this wrong?
My shit list: Stephen Harper, anarchists that complain about taxes instead of institutionalized torture, those people walking, anyone who lets a single aspect of themselves define their entire personality, salesmen that don't smoke pipes, Fredericton New Brunswick, bigots, philosophy majors, my nemesis, pirates that don't do anything, criminals without class, sociopaths, narcissists, furries, juggalos, foes.

What makes you think education increases efficiency? Efficiency comes from obedience, obedience comes from trust, trust comes from ignorance.

Add on to all of this, soil degradation, climate change caused reduction in crop yields, god knows what negative impact peak oil will have on agriculture and food distribution and the fact that we are running out of water.

This is shaping up to be a fun century.

Another (weak) argument: Students tend to be rebellious. Without universities there are no students.

You do not need a formal system of higher learning to be a 'student'. It certainly helps, but it is not necessary.
