Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Saturday, 2017.07.22
The well-off like nice cars, tasteful homes, good food, and appropriate
vacations - but not the oil, gas, coal, nuclear energy, transmission lines,
timber, cement, farmland, water pumps, etc., that bring that to them. . . . The
less well-off want their versions of the same things - cool clothes, good music
players, neat cell phones, the best plasma TVs, blue-ray players, video games -
but are not interested in the hard study and discipline necessary for a society
to create the sort of educated work force that makes and deserves such
appurtenances.
