First off, my sincere apologies for making you click on a link that will direct you to the Huffington Post. The last thing I’d want to do is drive anymore traffic to this liberal bastion. However, this is a very good article and it’s worth it. What I find fascinating is the irony; that to be a true partner is to be unselfish, and in essence, conduct yourself in a less overtly liberal way. The biggest problem with today’s youth and the whole liberal mindset is that of insane self-centeredness and victimhood. So this article basically says, “stop thinking about yourself so much, and think about others and the impact you have on their lives.” *gasp* the horror!
I struggle with the idea that is put forth: that all kids need to go to college to get a good job. Apart from the fact that today’s youth apparently hate the idea of working, or corporate America, it’s just a load of crock. Why don’t people see that they’re being thrown into a machine that serves to indoctrinate our youth while feeding overblown salaries of “educators?” Here’s a better idea, start working retail while in high school. Get a sense of responsibility and pride outside of your parents, who probably think you do no wrong. Learn what it’s like to work hard and earn money from people other than who gave birth to you. I guarantee you’ll become a better individual and productive member of society.
If you still insist that every child must get a child education, here’s something that should give you pause if you have a modicum of common sense.
We all have to start somewhere.
