What’s the most important reason to get a thorough education? It is NOT so you can get a job. It is so you can protect yourself and those you love from hatred, sickness and manipulation. It is so you can fight with confidence when you and those you love are threatened by something or someone.
It might be a religion talking to you, it might be your government, it might be your neighbor. But if you are not educated you have no defense against error, against lies, against misinformation.
I am not just talking about a formal education but you do put yourself behind the 8 ball if you don’t have that, I am talking about educating yourself constantly through out your life.
