It is an amazing thought to ponder that a few hundred years ago most of us
would be serfs sucking up to the local masa and bowing knee to god and king
while only a percentage of the populace got educated.
Oh wait..isnt that now as well?
I keed I keed, well almost.
It is a Land Of Plenty when a good chunk of one nation's kids (I speak of
the US since thats the one I know best) are given the opportunity to an
education many would have killed for 100 years ago but instead opt to "ya
know just hang and stuff, don't be such a downer about homework and stuff"
We have passed Plenty here and are well into the Land Of Squanderous Plenty
