That's one sure way to ensure people a stagnant life. There are better reasons why one might not wish to pursue college, whether for now or for good. But because the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger says you need to pio-sneer is not one of them.
Some good reasons might include the cost, you have a real good job that doesn't depend on college, you didn't make a good enough grade while in high school, or you really aren't sure of where you wish to go. There are a few people out there, mostly in the entertainment business, that lack even full high school diplomas and are very successful. If you are in a cutting edge position where college might just pull you back toward the Establishment, you may wish to not go. And, if you are planning on joining the military, you may wish to put off college until you get back home depending on what branch of the military and the particular circumstances.
However, one does need ongoing education that you cannot find in the Asleep! rags. Usually, this comes from college. For a few, apprenticeship or even hands-on experience of starting your own business is as good or better. But, even if you don't make one toilet paper extra because you went to college, you might just find the broadening out of your experiences to be worth it. And no, I don't pretend college is perfect. But it sure is better than the Asleep!.
For an example of how wretched the Asleep! is for education, I had read these rags for roughly 10 years regularly and glanced through them for another 7 or 8. The lessons on cultures are so disjointed that I couldn't do very well on cultures out of Japan--which they did touch on. One could never move to Japan and fit in by the information listed in that article. And, if you want information on other cities in the world, you are not getting it. Example: The local newspaper has weather information on worldwide cities. One had interesting temperature discrepancies: Auckland was consistently chilly during the summer months and mild during winter. To me, that placed it somewhere in the southern hemisphere and no clue as to where (aside that it had to be in the 30-35 o S range by the temperature. Not a peep about it in the Asleep! rag--which left me totally ignorant of its location in New Zealand (the largest city there, another fact left out in the rag). Where in the rags do you find out about cultures in Chile, South Africa, Australia, Hong Kong, or Singapore that you can rely on?
To me, this kind of gaps is inexcusable for a rag that is claimed to be the equivalent of a 4-year college degree. And that is just one example. You will find multiple examples of missing and/or inaccurate information about chemistry, physics, space exploration, geology, biology, or medicine. Such information, even if you are not planning on using it in your career, would broaden your base of knowledge. And, even if you never move out of your home country, reading and studying elements of culture in other countries will give you a different perspective of life at home.
It's even worse with materialism. Not using the world to the full is blatant stupidity. We need basic things to survive, but sticking just to the basics would lead to a miserable life. Even if you expect a major crisis soon, sticking with bare necessities is not wise. Though I took steps to prevent all the money in my bank account from becoming toilet paper by buying silver, I also spent on other things that I might want or need. For starters, I upgraded my clothing to a better quality and got rid of the crap (which will last much longer, and be more appealing). I got plenty of batteries and lanterns, along with chargers--staying near the upper estimate of what I might need instead of the lower. I also picked up Pokemon Black and White, which are not necessities but could provide a little fun should the Internet kill switch be imposed just prior to hyperinflation. I have a wide variety of music, organized by time it came out. I also have plenty of Christmas lights--I believe color can become more than a luxury after a few years of austerity.
The witlesses, on the other hand, are being ordered to make do with just the bare necessities. Why? So they can pio-sneer. They are supposed to give all their time to the Washtowel Slaveholdery. They miss out on all that broadening out that could give them new insights on their political situation. They miss out on the play. They miss out on colors--most of the life of a Jehovah's Witless is black and white. They miss out on fun. And, to boot, they miss out on security when they get older. Now, if I can manage to afford a few non-essentials now when I "should" be spending it all on silver, why can't they be allowed to afford a few non-essentials? Especially since their service, unlike my silver, cannot give them anything later.
