Funny, I was born in '66 and I could identify, in theory with what you just said. I think the only difference is that I was raised to believe that the blame for lifes issues lies in the mirror and not with society in general.
Ah another person aspiring to claim they know all and that
the ppl on wall street, the government, and corporations are
not corrupt and have no impact on anyone or the planet.
How very closed minded of you, the facts stand.
You are just another opinion in a sea of opinions and when
things fall apart Wiemar style and your living under a bridge
I will tell you to look in the mirror.
You make me wanna puke.

Run on sentence.
(this is a fragment and not a sentence, go back to school)
Use punctuation. Correctly: This is a fragment and not a sentence. Go back to school.
(only fools think this and guess what, that's was just you again)
This is a run on sentence. Correctly: Only fools think this. And guess what? That was just you again.
(no, WE, didn't do this, only you did and the other self important fools did this without checking what the value of their home was the years before they intended to buy it)
Wow! Use punctuation please!
(You might want to read about what “verbs” are, they make what we call “English” possible).
You might want to research proper "English" grammar before you call people out.
(with “A” very limited future, and no, that's just you again.).
Seriously, your grammar sucks.
(No, your paying the price of your own failures and blaming others for it because you don't want to take responsibility for your own mistakes)
No, YOU'RE paying the price of.............
You brought this onto yourself. You made an ass out of yourself.

I remember being told growing up stuff like "you can be anything you want to be." Some even told us we could be president of the United States if we worked hard towards it. That is quite obviously a lie. They had us filled with foolish dreams instead of teaching us reality.
I also remember being told that all I needed to do to succeed in life was 'go to school, make good grades, and you can get a job anywhere'. I was also told to 'stay in school, because no one will hire a dropout'. They showed me charts on how much more money people made by having a college degree, etc.
So, I went to college, got a degree, and discovered the jobs in that field had been shipped overseas while I was in school. So, I went back to college to get another degree, because I still stupidly did not get it, thinking that it was some sort of fluke. So then I got another worthless degree. Now I am a thesis away from having my master's degree and that degree is worthless to me as well because that field is laying off. LOL So I'm over $130k in student loan debt with no way to pay it and places like McDonald's refuses to hire me saying I am "overqualified."
