I have a dream constantly where I spy on random houses in my town and wait for the family to leave, or I'll set up surveillance and learn their daily habits, then when no one's home I go and pick the locks, and go steal their children's toys and video games. But the dad always returns before I get back and I end up murdering him, he murders me, or we fight, or I have to frantically escape the house. But every dream is uncomfortable and ends up horrible.
Why does this happen, /lit/? Interpret my dream

Do we, as a society, place too much value on "non-vocational" knowledge? is it really important for people to learn history, philosophy and the arts well at school or learn them at all?
What arguments do we have to keep stuff like that on the curriculum when faced with the usual "it's not important in the real world"/"it doesn't make money or helps the economy" accusations?
Let me clarify, I'm not against teaching the humanities. Knowledge is knowledge. But assuming most of you aren't as well, I'd like to know your angle. I'm frankly sick of repeating the "learning history to not repeat it" bit again and again.
