Wonder why people can’t accept that I messed up my life? They always making excuses in my behalf. College is a #mistake I have to live with for the rest of my life. It was all my fault. No one force me to go. No one put a gun to my head and sad I had to go. I sign on the dotted line when it came to student loans, not my parents for anyone else. Got degrees with no employment prospects. It is my fault. No one else’s. It was my arrogance and ego that did this to me. #collegedebt #studentdebt #college #arrogance #ego
There’s all these stories of famous mathematicians, physicists, and other scientists, who were poor but by chance got lucky and found, and vastly improved the world of science and mathematics, because they got lucky.
This doesn’t mean that other poor people didn’t just rise up for the community because they weren’t smart enough. No. Capitalist has hindered our scientific and mathematical advancements, everyone poor who vastly contributed to our world all acknowledge how lucky they got, and so many are not afforded this luck.
There are just as many people passionated, dedicated, and clever enough to make further advancements in our society who will never be given the chance to add to our society. That’s what capitalism has done to us. It has made education a thing for the rich and lucky, not for all. If education was for all and failure wasn’t penalized we would move so much further as a society.
