It's all right saying go to college, but what happens when everybody has a degree?
Are more jobs created? Of course not. Same amount of job openings, same amount of people trying to get those jobs.
Nothing is changed, nothing is solved. Just more unemployed people with degrees.
At one time you could get a job out of high school, learn the trade as you worked.
Nowadays employers are too lazy and tight with their profits to train people to work for them. So everybody has to go to school to get those jobs,
then spend years paying back their student loans for jobs they would have been experts at by that time if they were taught on the job.
Just more ways the profitiers can extract money from the gulable public.
If someone doesn't go to college, does that mean they are any less educated than someone who has? Do colleges have a monopoly on education?
Do the colleges know things that no one else does? Are colleges the only place you can get education from?
We are so easily manipulated and forced in to the pigeon hole thinking that they want. For what? Do you really think it's our future and knowledge
they care about? NO, it's money, pure and simple.
Have we become so nieve to think college is the only place to get educated?
At one time that WAS the case, when only the real privelaged got to go to college. When a college education really meant something.
Now they teach in college what used to be taught in high school.
A college degree is no better than a high school diploma.
You can educate yourself in half the time it takes a college to and for a damned site cheaper. But it's got so we're forced to except "their"
education and pay a rediculous amount for it.
It's just another sad scam perpetuated on the population so someone can make a buck. That's what makes capitilism good for the few, but bad for the
majority. This process of taking away the free will of society to choose their own path in life will eventually bite us in the ass.
This is why many real naturaly talented people get the shaft if they can't afford or don't desire (free will) to spend 4 years behind a school desk
so they can make a living from their tallents (art for example).
I know people who have wicked talent for graphic arts but can't get a job, even though they are more talented than the college grad, because they
didn't go to college. Is that right?
Should people suffer because they chose (free will) not to or couldn't afford to go to school.
You could say, well why didn't they go to school, it's their own fault?
I'm saying why should they go line someone elses pocket to teach them something they can already do?
It's a snowball effect. Soon you will have to have a masters to be a road sweeper.
