There are basically only two types of people in this world:
1) Those who do what they want
2) Those who wait to be told what to do
The tragedy is that too many of the first engage in illegal or sociopathic behavior to the detriment of everyone.
The tragedy of the second is that they deserve better.
The above New York Times article describes a well-educated and young woman who can’t see anything in her future but the second choice: Tell me what to do. Give me a job.
There is something wrong with all of society when people who have been educated and who have talents (she speaks five languages!) see only a slot and obedience as their future and their place in society.
All of you out there with your fancy education and unique skills who can’t see any income prospects: Agitate for change. You have the time on your hands. Fight for your future.
Create some action instead of just sitting there.
No one is going to do a damn thing for you.
