At some point between then and now, your group of citizens decided that they would tax themselves to pay for your education. I don't care if you know why they did that, I'm asking you to think about why they did that.
I guess because they thought education should be free for people that come from lower/middle-class families.

They usually (expect to) get something in return, something like goods or service.

Good. So what are your fellow citizens expecting to get in return by paying for your education?

Either free education for their own children, or nothing at all. It's probably similar to donating money to charity organizations.

They should never have allowed you to learn English, let alone teach it to you. You took to it too quickly and now you have no choice but to be corrupted by its inefficiencies. Now you can never be a proper German.

No Vosur, we are expecting to get another productive citizen as a return on our investment.

Because you need money to survive.

Sounds like a good idea. Do you have any ambitions other than to simply survive? Because if you don't, I suggest you find some. Life will be pretty damn dull without dreams.

Life is pretty damn dull.

Then make it sharp and exciting, because I can guarantee that you can make it that way. ;D I aspire to do all sorts of things before I die, and that's what keeps me going.
