I found this article about America's Lost Generation interesting but differ with their appraisal of a college degree's value.
College degrees are worthless. Companies demand not only a degree, but ten years of RECENT experience. Otherwise, you might as well not apply. You're just wasting your time.
A high I.Q. is irrelevant. Good grades are without value. Hard work is an object of scorn. Education means nothing.
Work is not permitted in the U.S. anymore. The jobs have been outsourced to China, India, Russia, and other of our "friends".
I see no reason at all to hope for a better future. All the signs are ominous, to anyone who is paying attention.
History does provide us with a road map, however, of just how horrible things will become.
