In 2005, Wikipedia co-founder and Wikimedia Foundation founder Jimmy Wales told a TED audience

"So, we're doing around 1.4 billion page views monthly. So, it's really gotten to be a huge thing. And everything is managed by the volunteers and the total monthly cost for our bandwidth is about US$5,000, and that's essentially our main cost. We could actually do without the employee … We actually hired Brion because he was working part-time for two years and full-time at Wikipedia so we actually hired him so he could get a life and go to the movies sometimes."

According to the WMF, Wikipedia (in all language editions) now receives 16 billion page views per month.[12] The WMF spends roughly $2 million USD per year on Internet hosting[11] and employs some 300 staff.[13] The modern Wikipedia hosts 11–12 times as many pages as it did in 2005,[14] but the WMF is spending 33 times as much on hosting,[15] has about 300 times as many employees, and is spending 1,250 times as much overall.[16] WMF's spending has gone up by 85% over the past three years.[17]

Sounds a lot like cancer, doesn't it? For those readers who were around three years ago, did you notice at the time any unmet needs that would have caused you to conclude that the WMF needed to increase spending by $30 million dollars? I certainly didn't.

From 2005 to 2015, annual inflation in the US was between 1% and 3% per year, and cumulative inflation for the entire decade was 21.4%—far less than the increase in WMF spending. We are even metastasizing the cancer by bankrolling local chapters, rewarding them for finding new ways to spend money.

Freudlose Tätigkeiten, die man nur aus finanziellen Gründen durchführt, würden ohnehin verschwinden. Doch wie erzieht man Kinder zu Erwachsenen heran, die Spaß an der Arbeit haben?

Hüthers Antwort: Nicht so, wie wir es jetzt tun. In seinem Buch „Rettet das Spiel“ plädiert Hüther dafür, Kindern wieder mehr Freiraum zum Spielen zu geben— auch im Kindergarten. Er sieht es als völlig nutzlos oder gar schädlich an, im Kindergarten bereits Schulunterricht in Mathematik oder Fremdsprachen zu geben. Denn nur im Spiel würden Menschen ihre Potenziale entfalten, so Hüther.

Er geht mit dem deutschen Bildungssystem hart ins Gericht. „Das System hat sich seit den 1950er-Jahren nicht mehr verändert und dient nur dem Zweck, Konsumenten hervorzubringen. Also Menschen, die nur arbeiten, um sich etwas leisten zu können.“ Er plädiert dafür, dass Erzieher in Kindergärten nicht darauf geschult werden sollten, die Kinder für die Schule vorzubereiten, sondern vielmehr, deren von Natur aus vorhandenen Entdeckungs- und Gestaltungsdrang zu fördern. „Kinder müssen selbstständig und unbekümmert die Welt entdecken und Erzieher müssen Freude und Fragen in ihnen wecken — und sie nicht belehren“, so Hüther.

Der Kinderpsychiater Michael Winterhoff ist ebenfalls der Meinung, dass das aktuelle Bildungssystem teilnahmslose, unmotivierte und unselbstständige Menschen hervorbringt.
