What could we possibly get from all that fancy book learning? Drinking Beverage

Some humility I suppose. Never I was more categorical than before starting University and starting reading for real. Now I can quote Socrates and say that I know that I know nothing, back then I would scoff at it rather than used it.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

It's the appearance thereoff. It's a fact that the right is more authoritarian. They don't want people to aks questions. They don't want people to doubt leadership - when they are in power. The opposition can be questioned and derided at any time. The state should never be questioned.

It's a little more prevalent in the USA than in the rest of the Western world. An oath at school would be unthinkable in Europe.
