I don't know how people who don't understand reading/writing/speaking yet (children who have not been educated) are going to understand that they'll have to pay for those services when they're older. Then people will opt out, be even more in debt, and then all future generations will be dumb as rocks. Society will then collapse. Great idea!

There are always going to be a percentage of people that can't read or write or really fit into the world we live in very well. As the old saying goes, "the world needs ditch diggers too". Before anyone freaks out, I have dug plenty of ditches myself and we have someone posting here under, ditch digger. Relax, it is just a saying and a good backhoe guy is worth his weight in gold as far as I am concerned.
