In the decades to come, the people who will increasingly shape our world probably won’t have a college degree at all - and that’s probably a good thing.
I shudder at the thought.
Please take a look at these "insanely successful" college dropouts:
Yes they have been "successful", but in general that success has come from the disruption of existing businesses and ways of life. And the main result of that disruption has been two things:
- wealth for the disruptor and his coterie; and
- poverty for everyone else.
I'm all for positive change. But when overwhelming changes cause widespread unemployment, poverty, hunger, homelessness, and sickness ... it's time to rethink what the hell is going on.
We're subjecting the bulk of humanity to the same pressures which led to the extinction of multiple species on our planet. Is that what we want? I doubt it.
But it seems to be what people like Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg want. And lately they've been getting what THEY want, regardless of what WE want.
Oppressed peoples have the right to rise up against their oppressors. Isn't that what the Declaration of Independence says?
