*goes back in time and convinces my mom to raise me in England*
this really makes me angry. My gf cries herself to sleep sometimes because college is too fucking expensive here in the states.
I’m 27 and I really want to go back to school and I can’t. It’s just too expensive for me to afford with the job I have. Here in the states, they don’t want you to succeed if you are poor. It’s easier to kick someone when they are down. I swear to God, I hate it here.
Bolding part of the above because it’s just oh so fucking true.
A huge part of the cause of this is the morbid fear of socialism in the US. Or anything vaguely remotely resembling socialism.
