3. education is no longer a guarantee of a living wage

we're the kind of country that thinks it's more important for capitalists to be able to pay a third-world wage than to elevate the entire society by refusing to kowtow to such feudalists.

Since Ronald Reagan, the U.S. has engaged in a policy of wealth redistribution upward.

So, honestly, the govt. and capitalists shouldn't be surprised when people reach the point they lash out. That's been the reaction to such policies for centuries.

If education mattered, maybe politicians and capitalists would utilize it in order to rein in their greed rather than breed violence.

But greed is stronger than reason, it appears.
