Some thoughts on structured education
It is great when we as a society set up artificial barriers that create value. Principally ones that require us to navigate an obstacle course of delusional importance, and then leave us thinking that we are somehow better and more qualified than everybody else. Sure, acquiring skills is important, but why do we have to become the skills themselves? Would we perform better (and be happier) if we made our creative intelligence the center and let the skills be learned as needed?
