Yes, definitely. I've spent a good bit of time in institutions, and those shitholes are really the loneliest places on earth (though the ones I went to were some of the nicer ones). Initially I engaged in self-loathing because of my condition, but I've since learned to use them as assets rather than being ashamed of them. For example, you might think that shitting your bed every night is purely a liability, but it also works wonders for getting bleeding heart social workers to empathize with your plight and give you free money and appearing weak so as to not appear a threat.
I'm stronger than I've ever been: more decisive, better at efficient prioritizing and working towards long-term goals, more physically fit, more capable at lying and other skills, and knowing what I want.
What is the purpose in education and work? Making daddy proud? Being a good citizen? Leaving an impact on the world? Providing for your family? Being EET takes eats enormous resources is inherently self-sacrifical, and for what? Your children die, your family continues to hate Russia and whine about matters of the world beyond their control, the state will eventually fall regardless of your actions, people you "help" won't be any better off with your aid and might only become less self-sufficient because of your actions, and the world will not change even if you sacrifice yourself for it. In the end, all you get for yourself are money and the ability to work your trade, with the latter being useful mostly for the former.
I can acquire the meager amount of money I require to get by far more efficiently without working, and my assets are very well suited for this particular trade.
