Students that have encountered student debt getting a degree that the market doesn't value would definitely relate to his story. Others will find it amusing as well. There are some heavy, thoughtful philosophical arguments made throughout that will make many question their worth. I liked many part of the story such as when after his hard work and effort he become debt free paying off a $32,000. Which then he had “freedom.”
By no means is our social structure perfect, nor is any social structure around the world. The whole premise of a society is to have different classes of people who are grouped together by certain circumstances. Societies tend to have spoken and unspoken rules, without rules the whole society would fall apart and break down. This breakdown of social rules is most often seen in the unspoken rules of a group, and highlights differences between social classes. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, displays how this social breakdown occurs when the spoken and unspoken rules of society are not followed, especially when it comes to the breakdown of marriage as well as general relationships between people.

They possibly will spend the hard earned money on alcohol, or drugs. Those are two thing majority of people don’t want their hard earned money to go to.
If a larger crowd of people witness a bullying incident, fewer people are likely to stand up to the bully. This is called the bystander effect. A factor of the bystander effect is the responsibility one must withhold when witnessing an incident (Feist and Rosenberg, 2015). When encountering a situation alone, one is more likely to help the person vs. when a crowd is witnessing the incident, the person is less likely to assist (Feist and Rosenberg, 2015). This is because if one is watching the incident happen by themselves, then they feel that they are responsible.
Continuous acts of kindness, such as talking to a homeless person, will hopefully change the negative stereotypes placed on various

The criticism is based on the reversal of proportions of population from who committed suicide to the number of those ‘protected’ from suicide (the ‘non-suicide’ rate). So while it seems as a big difference when we compare the number of people who committed suicide in different environments, it seems hardly noticeable when we compare the numbers of those who are ‘protected’ (Giddens, 1965; Taylor,
Some people believe that trading fairs for the homeless is more important than training young workers programs. The point of this objection focusing in going to the streets and ask homeless people why they are living on the street in order to figure out the reasons why. Then use this data to solve homeless problems. This may be a good solution; however, trade fairs for the homeless is the starting stage that usually used to collect data in terms of providing solutions for homeless people. In addition, this solution in aiming to avoid homeless in the future, which is the same aim of the young adults training
