Some look back to it, some hate it and some, like me, try to make the best of it.
The principe is simple:
“Only the smartest of them all can survive till the very end!”
But, what do I mean?
You go to school, to get your high school degree to be qualified for university, preferably, right?
But in the meantime, what do you learn?
Yeah, yeah, you learn something for the future… but I do not think it is the lessons, that are valuable.
See, we all go to school for about 12-13 years (depends on which country),
we learn, repeat, learn repeat, then we proof to our teacher, that we actually do know how to use information.
But this is not valuable, no it’s not.
What is most valuable, is the experience of being in a society.
You don’t quite understand how it works, till you finish school.
The world outside there… It is just like in school, just bigger.
So, in school you actually have an artificial, compact model of the society out there:
- The Hierarchy
There are always, the cool guys, the hot girls, the followers and the losers.
The coolest kids, always command someone else. They dominate their followers and the followers are therefore taking part of a group.
- Interest groups
Everyone has their own hobbies, which prepare them for life. Better or worse…
- Economic value (poor vs. rich)
There will always be this cool kid, always having the newest nike’s or whatever.
First sex, getting laid a lot etc.
- Education etc.
The trick is to master all or as much of possible of this.
