I really do believe it and becomes more evident every year. Part of it has to do with the association of a college degree as a means to vocational placement. Most go to college because they want a job or career when they get out. That is not what college is about. Learning the Canon and how it relates to today is long gone. College content taught today is a joke compared to the standards of 20-40 years ago. Do you think the average essay passed in today would grade as high 30 years ago? The dummying down of college material, degree paths, and grading is a tragedy and should be a national security concern.

Everything taught in college can be accessed for free online. I am strong proponent of education, learning, and vocational skills.

This is the whole issue. Most jobs in America are supremely easy and should not require a degree .A degree should be for folks to spend time improving themselves through a high quality education. Americans are obsessed with work and money, with all else falling by the wayside at the expense of 'productivity'

also reading Dostoevsky independently does not give you the context that reading Dostoevsky under the guidance of a great professor. A professor will always teach you more than just reading stuff online through forcing you to consider alternative points of view

Keep the S. Many people on S2ki, myself included, sold their S only to miss it so much they bought another one.
Dont make that same mistake.
Oh yeah, I also had a 2011 STi. Had it three years as a DD. Don’t really miss it, except when it snows.

On the education topic?

There are two points in life, birth and death. What you do in between is up to you, there is no right or wrong. The goal is to go to bed smiling.

I've owned all 3 cars that most are talking about here . 2001 ap1, 2017 wrx and 2018 sti. Idk where your from but are you driving in winter months? I only owned my s2k for about 2 yrs and it was never my type of car. I can totally understand why so many people praise the car its def a fun car but it was never my cup of tea. I bought a brand new 2017 wrx limited. The wrx was a nice car but I wasnt really a fan of the rev hang and the car seemed to die after 4k rpms . I traded it for a 2018 sti. Did basic boltons and a pro tune made 320whp and very happy. Fun, great in the snow , and has a little zip, and I love the interior of the new subarus. Regardless all 3 cars are great and it just depends your personality and what your looking for.
