The New Underclass

Thought: We make our children debtors the minute they leave college - shouldering the responsibility of paying back thousands of dollars in tuition.

Thought: The spectre of that debt along with the slow job market may cause some not to go to college.

Thought: Am I the only one who sees a problem here?

Maybe not.

For years I've been saying that one day there will be a huge majority of undereducated people "ruled" (governed) by the educated minority.

When a society has a such a big descrepancy between classes, it is ripe for revolt. David Brooks of the New York Times has written a column about this dire warning.

Read it and be warned - whichever category you fall under.
