    People spend too much time working to earn enough money to survive in this crap-ass society to no the meaning of the world.  Am I saying that we should all sit on our asses all day?  No.  There's plenty to learn about the world through traveling.  We could pick up odd jobs along the way to enable us to buy essentials.

    Not everyone wants to travel. You can learn plenty about the world in one community now a days. I agree that our society is directed at keeping most of us poor. That doesn't mean we should all pick up and leave.

    +Tyler Lawtey – I don't say that it was for everyone, but there's no substitute for actually being there when learning about other cultures.  Reading about it in a book or even from talking to someone isn't an immersive experience.  Is it better than nothing?  Sure and it's ok for those who do not wish to travel.  I'd prefer the more immersive experience.
