The purpose of education should be to enable a citizen to live a good, positive, socially productive life independent of work.”

“There’s a big distinction between humans as humans and humans as workers. The former are indispensable. The latter may not be.”
Andrew Yang, The War on Normal People: The Truth About America's Disappearing Jobs and Why Universal Basic Income Is Our Future
