why would i go to university if the job i wanna doesn’t demand me to go university?
someone who studies art isn’t necessarily smarter than an industrial business management assistant speaking 4+ languages :)
The increasingly huge trend of people slandering apprenticeships and trades as “things for dumb people” are why our generation is going to be effectively useless as far as actually keeping society in working order.
People have no idea anymore just how hugely valuable tradies are to society.
THE MACHINE DOES NOT FUNCTION WITHOUT PEASANTS.
^fucking this. Although craft/tradespeople are hardly ‘peasants’, specialised technical occupations are an enormous step up from menial labour and people who make a career out of their trade and develop a business for themselves often continue in further supplementary education years after they complete their apprenticeship to enhance their skillset. Which again is why this is potentially an impending social disaster, a person can’t just walk on to a work site and immediately start being an electrician. Hell even mixing and laying concrete is something you can fuck up pretty thoroughly if you haven’t got a clue - eg. the right type of cement, type of sand if using sand at all, what metal reinforcement to use, how to and having a clue is something you DEFINITELY need .
Also the value of university education really is so fucking overblown we don’t exactly live in a time where you need access to a University library to be able to read and discuss Philosophy, History, Psychology, Science, Economics or whatever to a sufficient degree to be literate in and understand those fields. Sure if you want to pursue certain careers professionally degrees are required as they put you through structured and rigorous study of various academic fields with people who know their stuff making sure you know what you’re talking about - but University is by no means a necessary condition for someone to be intelligent and knowledgeable - nor does it make a dumb person intelligent.
On that note, idiots with degrees are the fucking worst! Because now not only are they an idiot, but they feel a sense of authority and legitimacy about their own idiocy.
I have a feeling Anon is going to be one of those people >_>
The media is poison
