As the world becomes more complex, there will be an increase in specialized vocational training paths to getting a decent job. A college degree isn't for everyone and isn't necessary.

Unfortunately a good percentage of the masses could care less about being self sufficient and making their own way. It crosses racial lines and seems to be the way of "Generation Entitlement".
