I believe education should be encouraged. Opportunities need be made available for people interested in education. But I do not believe education determines how a person should be treated. People’s various talents and attributes can be beneficial for the many challenges society is faced with. It can be detrimental economically and socially for a society to have such a large divide in its classes.
Not everyone is fascinated with the scientific mindset or wants to pursue an intellectual path in life. People have a right to pursue their own path. I do not think it should be considered vulgar to go to a trade school or follow a path that leads to something other than an “intellectual” career. These are moral and useful ways to make a living. These are talents and arts society needs.
Intellectual snobbery has no place in a heart concerned with social conscience and human happiness.
