As we both said, it's tremendously difficult, expensive, and time consuming. Which is why I never considered the current option viable from the standpoint of the creation of any sort of self-governing system and why people generally never get the opportunity to 'choose their citizenship'. It's still mostly a birthplace lottery and a lot of luck, your responses haven't changed that. The time delay ALONE is beyond daunting for most people.
On top of that, if the option is utilized heavily then those timeframes explode.
As stated, this is one of the reasons why 'isms' don't work. Most people are pretty much stuck with the 'ism' they're born into, most people aren't vested in the system.
This is an accurate assessment.
Vested in The System?
Victims of The System or Lack of System.
If a citizen is not Vested in The System then that citizen is a Victim of The System?
Is There A System? What is The System?
I don't intend to be argumentative.
Some people do not want to go to College.
Recently I have spoken to and listened to people that did not go to college.
They are often Proud of not having an education and think it is a waste of time for others, too.
We have had an effective advertisement campaign against intellectualism.
There is an "ism" for us to tear apart.
To be fair to an Intellectual I must admit, "There is nothing new under the sun."
Assope's Fables speaks to 'The Sour Grapes'.
It is easy to criticizes what one can not attain.
One woman stated it as, "The Fault is with The Grapes."
The way I heard the story. The Fox never tastes the grapes.
The Grapes may be sour. The Grapes may be sweet.
A education fundamentally changes the individual.
Who would want to change fundamentally?
A college education or immigration to a nation that supports education?
Most Americans do not have those two choices on their list of things to consider, today.
A college education was within reach of nearly everyone for a while there.
It was a hiccup in Time. Not a perfect time, but a good time for many.
STD's were preventable or curable.
Leprosy was curable!
No Ebola! No AIDS!
Anyone that wanted to go to school could do that.
There were programs.
Few hours of work, a few hours of school, a few hours of study, a few hours of sleep and some food. Life!
Are there programs, today that elevate our people? We can afford that, now?
oh. We went into debt.
How unwise of us.
We did not go into debt educating our people.
The individuals are in debt for that and they are sometimes finding they did not get what they are paying for.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
by mr. Oscar Wilde.
Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
