1:An excuse to make life more misrable by the goverment
2:What most of us need
3:An excuse by the goverment to enslave us in a 8-12 hour prison with a bitchy dictating teacher to teach us crap and mistreat us so we are misrable, become barbarians, and so they can brain control us so we become "Sufisticated"
