Any business depends on profit to survive, and there is no profit to be had in providing privacy...and certainly not privacy without a fee. A fee of course means a method of payment, and every method of payment is traceable to some extent. Even totally volunteer systems are no guarantee of privacy, as governments are certain to be the first to volunteer.

So you deny it was Reagan who drove the second parent from the home then? Name one major sociatal change in the last thirty years that enables the average person to support a family on one income. Hell, we can't even get a living minimum wage passed in this country. It's all about more profit for the profit mongers and nothing about the survival of the family. So for some it is the best of times, for others the worst of times.

Passing tests is easy, homework is drudgery. If you've already passed the test, why should have to waste time proving that you are studying how to pass it? Homework is nothing than busywork, just as credit hours are nothing than putting time in a seat. You either know something or you don't.

Okay, I've moved on I guess. What I got out of your post is that is short sighted not to waste time performing tasks just to appease those who care about marks and not results. You might be even insightful, but I've got other knowledge to obtain and have no time to waste proving to you that I am obtaining it.

Along the same lines, good grades do not mean that you will be successful in the work environment.

The same as bad grades don't mean you won't.

It is a first pass, enough to get your foot in the door.

Which means that there may be many very good employees that you won't even let through the door simply because they think so critically that they won't toe your line.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing for money.

Working...
