    Americans Must Find Higher Education Options

    Let's get right to the point: When you are locked out of higher education institutions in the United States of America, find options elsewhere.

    Capitalists and Capitalism have proven themselves inept when it comes to providing higher education for all. There are no two ways about it. Personal, corporate and cartel greed have slammed shut (in the faces of millions of hopeful citizens) the doors of institutions of higher learning. We may as well face it and deal with it.

    The rich, the moneyed, the extremely intellectual can usually get into American institutions of higher education. "Regular" people face many barriers; thus, millions of "regular" people never get the opportunity to get higher education degrees.

    The current focus on community colleges and "blue collar" types of training provide clear testament to the failure of our nation to provide higher education for all. The other side of the coin is stark: Under this paradigm, the executives and leaders of the future will be those who have degrees from institutions of higher learning. So much for "The American Dream".

    What to do? First of all, realize that you are at a disadvantage. Secondly, take responsibility for your own higher education. Obviously, The United States of America is unable to figure out how to provide higher education for all (or even most) of its young people. So, you must find higher education for yourself.

    Thankfully, there is the Internet. Use it! Look around the world for higher education opportunities. Teach yourself other languages. Apply for admission to institutions of higher education around the world. Apply for financial aid around the world. Until you have done your most you have not done your best.

    Do not allow the inability of your nation to educate you rob you of the wonderful potential and great contributions you can make to planet Earth. If you really are intelligent, prove it!!! Find the higher education you need (so that you can be all that God intended you to be). Don't allow Capitalism and the capitalists to limit your contributions to Planet Earth. Get up and do something! Find the higher education you need!!!

    Where to begin? You can find "low hanging fruit" on the Internet. Remember the following term "MOOC". A MOOC is a Massive Open Online Course. The MOOC is normally free. You normally DO NOT receive higher education credit for participating in a MOOC (yet some institutions of higher education will, upon payment, consider your work for possible university credit).

    Do not become "second class" in the United States of America. Don't become an American "serf". Don't be relegated to the position of "bossed technocrat". Get up! Reach out! Look worldwide! Unearth your opportunities. Prepare yourself to become all that Almighty God created you to be.

    If you wait for others to lift you up, you will probably live your life working under others.

    Americans must find their higher education options and use those options to become all that God meant for then to become.
