Reply to "Valedictorians Unite! Lose Your Schools! LOL"

It's interesting.  I applaud the young lady for the level of self-examination. 

The thing is, though, every society has rules and expectations of its members, and every society seeks to "train" its members to become productive parts of it.  Even the simplest hunter-gatherer societies -- people who had no conception of something like a "paycheck" -- did it.  It's paradoxical that our society is enlightened enough to produce people who are capable of examining and criticizing this reality, yet it's still bound by that mandate. 

20 years from now if I'm still around, I hope I remember this girl's name.  I'll google her (in whatever form "googling" takes 20 years from now) and see what she's doing, and how assimilated (or not) she's become.
