The WTS has been railing against Higher Education™ for over half a century. They bullied me out of it on my first go at learning a vocation after high school.
Twelve years later I went back to college, against cries of "But Armageddon™ is Right Around the Corner™!" and three years following that, I graduated with Honours. In a few weeks' time I will have graduated 20 years ago.
Armageddon™ is not coming. There is no New System™. Everyone is going to grow old and die. I don't say that to be discouraging, but to emphasize that THIS is the ONLY LIFE we have, and it's up to each person to make the most of the life they have. If you have talent, develop it. If you have a thirst for knowledge and a drive to achieve goals and a career, then GO FOR IT.
The only reason the WTS has been successful at getting people to delay or forfeit their education and career and even marriage and family, is because they've convinced their followers that there's plenty of time for all that in the New System™. They're LYING. It's what they do.
They've convinced people to live as though they'll never die, which makes people believe they can put things off indefinitely. Living with the certainty of death helps people set goals for themselves, to do or try things when they have the opportunity, because those opportunities may not come again. Plan for your future, because the one the WTS offers is a worthless pile of crap.
