This should be nurtured through values and upbringing, natural curiosity etc, not part of some formal education curriculum where someone is required to learn such. If someone ONLY wants to learn a trade, fine. It's this "well rounded perspective" argument that has resulted in the bloated college curriculum now, and the moving of the goalposts that a college "education" is necessary to have any kind of "real job" rather than a HS one.

Now, I do agree with the fundamental idea but not the why - I think that not every schmoe should have a vote (since even a strong constitutional system can be eroded over time by such), so some kind of knowledge and demonstration of that knowledge should be required (e.g. civics test/"voting license" or similar).

I think the main problem is “liberal arts” curriculum has been hijaked by wokeness. Even when I was going to college in the early 2000’s is was going that way. But I don’t see how a society can make progress if it is blind to its understanding of being and knowing.
