  • We're surrounded by idiots; sometimes they have good ideas, but they can't express them or recognize them. A philosophy education allows one to recognize and describe these ideas, or recognize when ideas aren't good, and why not.

  • Skills in philosophy intimidate people (which can be good, but bad as well; care and tact are necessary)
