During the start of the 19th century the educational system was created in order to create a herd of obedient factory workers, and raise them on the principles of following the rules and listening to their superiors no matter what. The system had a point.
Now, anyone can learn anything they want on their couch at home, but the educational system has barely changed worldwide. It’s all about making money and making you spend a lot of needless time within the system. As Derek Sivers says: “The standard pace [of any educational course] is for chumps.”
The system doesn’t have a point.
