I've talked to an American before (I am not myself), and they even supported college and university being this costly. Their reason was that you should invest money to get a good education and not be lazy. It was very... weird.

I'm an American and don't worry we're not all that dense.

I didn't expect that, don't worry, but it makes me sad that there are still people who think that.

I see it all the time. People who (mind you had everything laid before them) claim to be self-made and will literally pass off poor people as just 'lazy' or 'stupid'.

Jokes on them, because it's a reflection of how unhappy they are even with their wealth and material items. They still feel the need to put themselves over others.

We have this saying "you get what you pay for" which leads us to errantly believe that if something is more expensive then it means it's inherently of higher quality.
