    lol.
    According to statistics, the first corollary of a high socioeconomic status is education.

    Go figure why!?

    Correllation does not equal causation, and a piece of paper doesn't say anything about experience.

    Certainly... but nonetheless, can you explain without demagoguery why the first corollary of a high socioeconomic status is education?

    Why?

    @Blackmail! this argument is getting old... so put up, shut up. If you really are a French aristocratic professor, what's your name so I can google you and look at your research. You've made a lot of claims, let's see the support. I'm sure @DJ Arendee wouldn't mind having that info either.

    Giving your real name to somebody who displays such agressive behaviour on a psychology forum is generally not a very good idea.

    But nonetheless, it's not that difficult to find who I am. There are already a few residents of Typo-C who know my own facebook page, those I consider my friends.

    I'll settle for empirical evidence. And it's more annoyed than aggressive. As you can see I haven't been using a ton of caps-lock and exclamation points. I merely ask that people support their claims with substantive evidence instead of subjective experience and hearsay.

    That's what annoys you?

    It's not the liberal elite simultaneously bragging about their status and privilege while condemning how western society leeches off of the developing world?
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    I would only agree with you if we changed the word education to "knowledge," because supporting "education" is to support a grandfalloon. And if you think an abstract prestigious title means anything in the real world, keep dreaming.

    I graduated the US naval academy and didn't know how to cook fried rice or use a staffing agency to find a job.

    Yeah that too. I think that's actually the part that set me off on this whole rant to begin with.
