What makes you think this magical treatment (which doesn't exist, and may never exist) will be available to everyone? Life extension/immortality would easily become the most valuable thing on earth. It would sell for a fortune, be used for political and financial gain, and generally be restricted to the super rich.

There won't be a population problem because the majority would be allowed to die.

If you think kids are mindless automatons that are incapable of thinking for themselves I'd invite you to smash your own head in with a brick. No really, that's world class idiocy that nobody needs and I'm sick to death of useless people who see kids as devices that require constant reprogramming.

Kids today have access to more information now than anyone from any previous generation. While some of them will give out lazy answers and make no effort, there are some who will definitely try to make an informed decision. No amount of promoting will change this.

Even when you have the skills for a good job, you learn quite rapidly that the job you land can suck pretty hard. Worse, you wind up playing employment hopscotch for quite some time trying to find a job that doesn't suck. The moral? Be prepared to be disappointed by your chosen career. Unless you're one of the blessed few, it's not going to be roses and sunshine.

Air is water with holes in it.
