: What do you think the capitalists today would make of such an idea?

: You're not the only dude unacquainted with Smith...

: _______________

: Note:

: 1. Smith, The Wealth of Nations, Modern Library Edition, pp. 734-5, emphasis added.

If that were true how did we manage to produce the most inventive people in the world? Instead of having a nation of morons, as Smith seems to claim division of labor leads to, we have an educated populace in a country where thousands, if not millions, of foreign nationals vie to send their children for education (moral and cultural morons, maybe).
No matter how tedious a persons job is that doesn't prevent him from continuing his own education and pursuing his own goals. Night school, courses, two jobs, whatever it takes.
Just do it.
