This blog’s post brought to mind a stark reality. What’s presented to us the vast majority of the time isn’t actually the best the world has to offer, no matter what agenda we’re threading.
For example: The sterilized conditions of schools are control by rules to give each child a sense of fairness that doesn’t truly exist in the real world. No, by no means take away the even leveling fields that schools ingrained in children. It will carry them through the hardship of adult life. Don’t traumatize pre-schoolers and kindergartners with reality. That protection is there for a reason; So that they will grow into productive members of society. They will have a life-time to deal with reality.
However on the other hand, this same safety net may serve as a disadvantage for youth without parents who have clog or influence. They enter the world with the false sense of achievable; that opportunities exist and things can be accomplished according to their own merit and guarantees of our Constitution, but in reality—the preamble nor one’s own skills does very little to aid a person accomplish their goals in life if they aren’t of a certain social class. The world is a puree scapegrace to those whose ancestors didn’t land on top of others centuries ago.
Yes, many people create their own accomplishments. They don’t accept it that society ‘say’ they aren’t the best because of where they came from. They didn’t comes from the echelon of society. They don’t allow pessimism to rule their life. They kick it in the butt and sends it packing. But these are the Best the world has to offer that most of us are never privileged to meet.
