This is hilarious! Nevermind the countless trillions the government STEALS from people and squanders on wasteful spending in public school programs or the military. Come on Mr. Gladwell, if you want social justice, turn your attention to the thieves in government. Oh by the way, most university costs are skyrocketing because government subsidizes schools
