The members of this forum are largely men and boys - with a few excellent exceptions
If we look at the world around us we can see very clearly that boys are baling out of universities in unprecedented numbers - without seemingly causing any concern for the rest of “Society” and that the natural boisterousness of boys is demonised as ‘ADHD’ (attention deficit hyperactive disorder’ - attracting a treatment with soporific drugs to keep them sedated. Even the feminisation of schoolwork and exams acts against them and we know for a fact that papers anonymously submitted for marking by boys at school are marked 5% higher if the teacher does not know the paper was written by a boy.
Jordan Peterson says in one of his interviews "Do not send your children to University - Send them to Trade School !" (He dioes NOT restrict that comment solely to boys if I remember aright. )
We do know that in the uk almost 50% of all children go through “Higher education” and that the split is 60-40 girls -boys (which in itself is quite interesting.) We know quite a lot about the average psychological differences between men and women - And we do know that on Average boys and girls intelligence is equal.
What we do NOT know is which Boys in particular are opting out of higher education - Although we can postulate hypothetical reasons as to WHY they are doing so.
what is certain is that a large number of boys of higher than average Intelligence are deliberately choosing NOT to take on the substantial debt incurred by going there - because of what they have observed in their short lives - Some say that they as a demographic are becoming “Red-pilled”
Many of these above average intelligence boys are - I postulate seeking an alternative way to make an income through trading - which is a fairly high risk occupation - but offering at the margin a hope of huge rewards - or if successful a relatively easy method to obtain a reasonable reward.
Alexander Elder said of trading "Learning to Trade will cost you about as much as a good College Degree" - so any wanting an easy income without work will be disappointed - this much we know - but If any of is in this position and looking for a way forward - then go ahead and examine the pros and cons of trading - it has the huge advantage that you are only reliant on yourself and your ability with the huge plus that NOBODY can get promoted above you through “Affirmative action”
Hope this helps and I’d like to hear from any of you in this position
