No doubt there should be a change in industry and jobs. It requires industry AND labor to be a bit smarter. That doesnt excuse the students that go out and spend hundreds of thousands on college degrees without following marketing trends and pursuing degrees in viable fields. We opnl;y need so many political scientists...so many liberal arts degrees...so many chefs...etc. Regardless...you have to be a complete idiot to go to college, take out loans to pay the SCHOOLS, then blame THE BANKS.
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
