why would me saying theres more to life then a rat race make me mad?

I also dont understand the rest of your post. of course you should give back to your country. education does help for employment, but there is so much more to education then getting a job. I would hope our nation would want and educated population and knowledgeable voters. dont you?

remember, this is a government of the people, by the people, for the people. not some fascist dystopia where the people are expected to suffer and sacrifice for the motherland. the people are the nation.

@nemiroff are u mad, what's the reason that country should spend it's money on you if you won't give it back and do good for it. And if u are normal person you would work for your children's future and for future generations in general. And why do u even need education if u will not work somewhere. But no, let's all be selfish bastards.

You do go to school because its a requirement for work, however, it doesnt teach you much about the real world.

It's hard to tell without a more detailed description of what specifically the topic is referring to, but it sounds to me that the argument is that education is about churning out a workforce. Without education we cannot advance as a society. Without it we have no artists, no scientists, and no engineers. While these are certainly professions, to insinuate that it is only about creating workers would be to miss a sizable chunk of it's importance.

and food is just a survival necessity on the most fundamental, yet ignorant, level.

there is more to life than an endless rat race.
