Are you saying that your parents were “burned out hippies”?
I didn’t say that. I am, though, suspicious of anyone who promotes only one way to salvation in the world of work. There are those—and you are one of them—who accent but one way to fame and riches. Many of them tend to be oriented toward engineering (hell, they seem to worship the discipline to the exclusion of all others).
Fine, if you think that mathematics is the One True Path, well, that tells me that you are young and very inexperienced.
P.S. There are hordes of people working on the floor at Wall Street and other trading exchanges who are liberal arts graduates making bundles of money and they probably would look quizzically at you if you mentioned differential equations.
Don’t assume what I say are my own thoughts on the matter. I try to defer to the wise among us and the wise ain’t the young.
The wise have told me to learn as much math as I can therefore I listen. At least I have a marketable skill and not some “creative writing” degree.
That and neck tatoos.
That the exact opposite of what I’m saying. My parents weren’t a part of that selfish culture and bred well-adjusted conservative children. Liberalism is a sickness that’s affected generations far earlier than my own.
Agreed. I also want to point out that (while I can’t stand him) Obama actively went after the youth vote. The Republican party has been pathetic in regards to reaching out to my age group. Fortunately the new media has picked up the slack somewhat...
I won’t disagree that many in my generation are idealistic and misinformed/uninformed, but that’s not a characteristic unique to the Millenium Generation.
