If you are associated with a collegiate profession, I feel for you. The profession is becoming increasingly antiquated in the face of mass media, ability to carbon copy information, swarm editing of information, data access, etc. Why consult a “professional” when (if you have the cognitive ability) you can just as easily access the raw data and paint your own conclusion?
The world today does not value perfection or success. Making high grades is almost useless when what actually gets the job is confidence, people-skills, social-circle, charisma, and bull-headedness. In fact, the world awards those who have said “Fuck you” to the man. How does it feel that when you leave your higher education bubble, Lil Wayne is more successful in the real world than you? See, he is an underdog anti-success. He did not try to paint the Mona Lisa with that slight little quirky smile. He did not value composing the most melodical tune to a 50 piece orchestra. He didn’t study anything else but how to get out of his shitty condition.
Education lost its point to the postmodern revolution. Good is bad, bad is good, right is wrong, wrong is right. The paradigm has shifted. That’s how the real world works. Education cannot compete with this, hence natural selection is going to eliminate it one way or another.
