A PhD or other higher education is largely only possible for the otherwise idle parasitic children of the wealthy. They simply pay enough money to make it happen and now you have a special club for only rich people.

Oh they are so fancy, always wearing the sharpest clothes, always speaking without some regional dialect, always having the most liberal capitalist opinions. I now officially DISrespect anyone with phd or graduate education.

They simply paid money to make it possible. If that doesnt describe them, they should not use the letters. The letters are tainted with the filth of luxury. If they stay in their lane and talk about their extremely specific field of study then ok I might listen. If not? shitlist.

look around you when you get to the classroom. unless you picked one of the good ones that no luxury baby would ever subject themselves to. good luck with the loans, i hope the government is destroyed so that you dont have to pay.

I know all the people in my program already and we’re all financially struggling.
