In this week’s True Community (published this past Wednesday), I comment on America’s profit-at-all-costs mentality and how it affects young men who decide to pursue higher education. Personally, I often feel guilty that I’m unable to earn more money or provide more for my wife and family. I know that sort of guilt is learned, and it both informs and shapes the points of view of men seeking employment. The effects are negative, often to the point of damning the guys to failure before they even start learning anything.
Hope you’ll check it out. And please do share.
