I agree. People tend to get education, higher ed, and a college degree confused with success and guaranteed upward mobility. It doesn’t.
Colleges today are diploma mills doing any kind of fuckery to keep the doors open and pay the people to keep the sham going. It’s sad. I don’t feel sorry for any of those people. They lack common sense and are addicted to privilege. They get away with enough in life. When they get busted it’s well over due. Great essay!
