Why business classes in junior high and high school are not required is dumbfounding. It is as is there is a conspiracy to keep us from knowing how to start out our lives in a promising way. The problem with capitalism is that it makes it less profitable for all if we are all successful. So through logic, I can see why many are not shown how to be successful in business because of the many that are needed as labor. Labor, a lesser activity in the eyes of successful business types. Well it seems to me that without good labor successful business types would most likely fail so for them to treat labor as a lesser activity is more about their psychological failings than actual reality.
Competition for the most success has this major failing. It puts the rest who are not successful in a detrimental way. Again, the survival of the fittest mentality permeated throughout our business culture. Not conducive to a healthy society but there it is in ours. Until we can understand that work here on this planet is a marking of time for greater adventures and opportunities for equality in outer space, we will continue to under value our citizenry and make a mockery of democratic principles.
