I work in financial aid for a large university, and people are so shocked and upset when I tell them they're going to be in lots of debt when they graduate. Then they start asking me why the government doesn't care about them as if I'm the one who's personally been putting greedy people in charge this whole time?? I don't understand how you can see so much about the student debt crisis in the news, do nothing about it for years, and then be surprised when it happens to you too.
And I know they're a part of the problem because they will, unprompted, start complaining about how poor people took all of their money and that they don't deserve anything. I have no idea how so many people in this country have been convinced so deeply that literally everything else is the problem except the greedy people ruling over everybody else.
