With all the loops and holes you have to jump through people are bred to be one thing or another. Elementary school which is basically free daycare, middle school, high school, required classes and college. You need a 4.0 GPA where the classes are picked out for you, and you are told what is important to study. The better you are at jumping through the hoops the more likely you are going to be able to get into Med school, Pharmacy, Law, PHD.
You have to want it, you have to work hard for it, and you have to be willing to sacrifice for it all.
The less you’re willing to jump into debt, the less willing you are to go back to school, the less willing you are to sacrifice the farther down on the ladder you land if you decide to go with a “traditional” job where you make an hourly wage.
The less you make the less options you have available for you, and the less time you have to get involved. At this point if you do care about your position, you have to focus on yourself, and not on everyone as a group.
In summary I propose:
- The hardest workers and people with more options in life are the ones who accept the system.
- The people who don’t fit as well into the system are bogged down so that they can not gain influence.
Although the situation is more of one that developed over time than one that was conspired and produced.
