Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
I was never handed anything.
I recieved no bailouts from a generation before me, who weren't required to have a degree.
I tried living for awhile without going to college and hit the ceiling. My degree was necessary to my success in life. And I have been paying this loan longer than any bill of my entire existence. At the rate I can afford, it will be the most hideous debt I've ever incurred. It will be paid off shortly before I retire.
I didn't want it. I needed it.
I borrowed an obscene amount of money to simply have some modest success in America. And I do mean modest. College isn't a luxury. It was required.
A country that looks down on education and treats it as a for profit, for the wealthy only, will suffer the consequences for it. And we the people will foot the bill.
To the older crowd who shouts it isn't fair: your education never came close to the cost of mine and you didn't need college to get a good job, buy a home and have a family.
At least that's what you told us. For decades.
It was your generation who set the rates. Jacked the price. Turned school into a casino. Into another money pit with only one goal: profit. It's the only bill that can't be wiped from bankruptcy.
It's time to blow that fucking idea to pieces.
Fuck this shit.
