Back in the old days, the Great Wisdom was that if you wanted to make money, you went to where the money was.. The immediate conclusion was you went into banking.
In the real world, money, the real money is often back in the sticks. Sears Roebuck was declaimed by many because it was going out to the sticks. It came back in the form of sticks sold gold.
You go where the money is. There is more money being handed around by redistribution than Sears ever imagined.
And the agents get PAID.
In every other industry where money goes the immediate question on everybody’s mind is: Cui bono? What capitalist exploiter is fattening on that government contract?
But that question never comes up when other government expenditures are involved.
Almost every student who makes good grades wants to be like Mommy Professor: Never to leave school. He wants to spend his entire life where he is good at something.
Mommy Professor never has to grow up. He has NEVER left school.
Everybody expects industry to oppose taxes and regulation. Every person in an industry is expected to have a giant idea of how important that profession is.
Except Mommy Professor.
And, unlike people in other industries or occupations, there is no discussion of any bias in Mommy Professor’s industry.
That is a simple Mantra-like explanation of the fantasy world college graduates have made for us.
