Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt they can't afford the time to think. Tuition Fee increases are a disciplinary technique, and by the time students graduate, they are not only loaded with debt, but have also internalized the disciplinarian culture. This makes them efficient components of the consumer economy."

I am....can't speak for anyone else.

You and your age range seem to be the loudest in complaining about everything.


Can you explain this to me....at what point in your life has making excuses and complaining helped you achieve a goal?

Bad example.

Maybe we see the issues the clearest?

You keep calling it complaining. Sounds like, " I don't want to look at the issues, I'm doing fine why should I care about you?"

Oh because he's paid by the system that he's bucking it invalidates his position?

No news flash in that statement he's bucking the system and biting the hand that feeds.

You want to make claims about how the millenials have it worse than EVER!

You best be prepared to back it up.

The millenials have a cake walk compared to the Greatest and Silent generations, let alone generations that suffered far worse than even those two examples.

No, the fact that he profited from the system...than bucked the system invalidates his position.

As it does with the vast majority of hypocrites.

So you affective lay make it about him rather then the idea he's discussing?

You mean like the last for or five posters in this thread?

Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

While that may be true, is the point made by that quote any less valid?

I think he hits the nail right on the head, even if his integrity is compromised as you claim. So yeah, maybe he's not the best "example", but the quote seems pertinant to the discussion, no?

So, you have run out of legitimate arguments...nope, you didn't even start with those.

I guess this was expected.

Yes, bitching and complaining.

If you and your age range wanted to be successful......you would go and do it.


And you are correct. I don't care about you. You are the one to care about you. There is your underlying issue. YOU need for me to care about you, to go and be successful.

The term "man-child" comes to mind. And all I envision is your need for a participation medal.

The quote is absolutely pertinent to the discussion and I agree with it 100%.

Now, let's talk about SOLUTIONS. Not complaints. Not blame. Not attitude. SOLUTION.

What is the solution, onequestion?

(I've learned to ignore people who aren't contributing to the issue at hand.)

I actually care about the community around me. Why you want to turn that into a bad thing perplexes me.

You would be nothing alone you need the rest of America to work in order for you to work in it.

I present the solution and the problem already.

You can't solve an I identified problem.

Why don't you come up with a solution if you don't like mine.

No, I completely disagree.

I believe that adversity, and, more specifically, how we overcome adversity, is the primary cause of societal adaptation and innovation.

Basically, we slug through the $hit while figuring out how to slug through $hit easier.
