I don't know that people who benefit want the negative results. They just want to give people what they want. They say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Making better games, making Internet faster, making social media platforms for people to communicate and collaborate, making delicious processed foods, . . . this is all giving people what they want, giving them what they ask for. It's not giving them what they need.
Education used to also include learning about virtues and finding our places in society, ways that we could make ourselves fit into the world. Now, the type of education we get is about changing the world to suit us and our way of thinking. It is a cold and unspiritual approach to living. People are just objects that can be adjusted, modified, and standardized for general purpose.
There is always some psychological pathology you could determine about why people fall by the wayside. You can explain it all away with dysfunctions. These are just people who need to be taught how to better deal with life. But, a life of what? Education throws you out into the world for general use by society with no idea how to find your life purpose. We are just widgets that are interchangeable with the proper training.
Of course, that's not how people function. But you wouldn't think it based on how little time is spent teaching young people to figure out their core values and their life purpose. One doesn't just get out of bed and figure these things out.
