No matter what, the Washtowel doesn't want people to succeed. You go to college, they bash that. You start your own business, "it takes too much time from field circus". You get into show biz, "you are not supposed to glorify yourself". All anyone is supposed to do is pio-sneer, getting up for field circus early in the morning and going to that damn boasting session or Family Waste the Evening Night (or letter writing, if there is neither that day).
Either way, the results are not good. The education, even if one cannot get a money profit from it, does help broaden one's perspective. Take that away, and you are left with a narrower perspective. Ultimately, the only material you are to read is the littera-trash and the rags. You get an idea of where countries are and how the witlesses are doing in those countries, but not the cultures or economic conditions of those countries. You get bogus explanations of what science is trying to do--that radio-carbon dating is off by orders of magnitude, that water can displace heavier rock mass, and that the earth was made in 50,000 years and will last forever instead of a few billion more years. Your math will also be impaired--the double donation scam is a classic example.
And yes, all this does lead people to die destitute. When you cannot go to college, become an apprentice, start your own business, or get into show biz, you are assured to be unable to earn much money. Washing dishes, waiting on tables, checking out groceries at Walmart, and washing windows and cleaning toilets is not going to earn one a decent living. And it's not going to get people out and about--at least, if you are selling product online, you are probably going to be demonstrating such products when you go on vacation and you are going to have to keep up to date with the latest product (presuming you are doing it yourself instead of relying on a MLM).
