Re: “Why I’m dropping out of school” (November 12)
I write this as a response to a previous letter to the editor by Phillip Niedzielski. If this article was written as some sort of tomfoolery, I heartily approve.
Still, though I can appreciate the angst of a fellow student, I’d have to say that university is a most enlightening experience. One can experience the joys of Machiavellian capitalism, along with the modern degradation of education. And I would never have known about these amazing phenomena without university to teach me.
As for society, it isn’t much of a flower. Society is more like a sadist who mortgages illusions for a living; once you run out of credit, it rips you out of your illusion, dumps you into a more depressing one, and tells you how it was all really your fault over a cup of tea.
Idiocy and clinical misdiagnosis are just small stains on society’s shirt.
It’s all good.
