The prison is a booming business they said because the statistics show that prisons in US is 40% crowded. While countries like Holland and Sweden are closing down the prisons cuz they arent enough criminals.

The land of freedom and democracy they said. I say it’s the police state.

US COLLEGES. 

for real though.

American higher education baffles me. The best universities in my country are completely free, and even the private ones are not so expensive that it’d force someone to incur in debt.

Could someone tell me how much US students pay to attend college? In Canada, colleges tend to be 3-5K a year, and universities are 5-7K.

Most schools are between 40-60K.  Some (like NYU and a few others) are more.

And no.  That’s not a typo.

Isn’t it terrifying to know that only rich can afford the quality education to advance in the social hierarchy?

Just imagine some brilliant young minds with the potential to become somebody who could possibly achieve something so great that’ll benefit all of us as a humanity are somewhere working for the dead-end minimum wage job?

Such a tragedy yet the situation cannot be more real.

Also worth mentioning the fact that many of the highly educated engineers and doctors are from overseas or foreign born.

This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.
That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.
This is why we download.
