It's a good thing. What better way can there be to teach adolescents important principles necessary to finding ones function in a modern industrial society? You are a meaningless cog. You are replaceable. The Powers that Be are too busy to bother with anything but the most extreme circumstances. Your "name" is merely a personal convenience--your true identity is your number. How better to prepare the youth of a country for the grinding banality that will be the rest of their lives?
