So old folks get an effectively free spot in a class to entertain themselves in their retirement but if you're a young person just starting out and want to educate yourself to build a future you can basically gfy.

Hey danni, this is why boomers can go eff themselves.

This is precisely the "I got mine, f$)& you" mentality that defines the boomer generation.

Boomers get to pay the same price they paid in the 70s while millenials get the same classes for 40x the price hahahaha.

---- boomers.

If the next generation doesn't like the current civilization and infrastructure we have and to which they have contributed nothing, they are welcome to go live in the woods naked and build their own.

What's to like? Boomers have neglected it all in order to maximize every cent that can be extracted for themselves.

Even if we wanted to contribute, the boomers would have found a way to take it anyway, leaving our "civilization and infrastructure" in shambles no matter what.

Yeah, that's it.

We're making things up just so we can crap all over the unicorn paradise we're being handed by the boomer generation.

What you're saying is that you, as a person, haven't taken on the responsibility of leaving the world, if not a better place, at least not a worse place, for those yet to be born.

Maybe the 1% that owns 99% could throw their "fellow citizens" a tiny bone? I mean, what is the actual cost of no opportunity other than eliminating survival in a "merit" based economy? The 1% must be incredibly beneficial.. other than that they are not.

I agree that we shouldn't waste materials on beheadings when you would obviously make a fine mulch, being filled with all of that waste. Like that episode of Dr. Who - you can feed the Crinoid.
