If he’s a materialistic little bugger I wouldn’t feel much sympathy for him, but if he’s an intelligent individual with a genuine strong interest in a particular field of study that he can only pursue through a humanities degree, then I would say go for it, but he should pay for the privilege and not expect society to give him a cushy well paying job at the end of it.

A lot of jobs that pay well in reality, do not require a university degree, they are bullshit silly jobs that anyone with half a brain can learn how to do with a year or two of on the job training. (marketing..etc./) It’s not my fault that elitist charlatans (human resources people) require a university education for these positions (any degree will do in some cases) as a way of validating their own Mickey Mouse credentials and pulling the ladder up from people with disadvantaged backgrounds.

I didn't have anyone in particular in mind, but yeah I meant the intelligent and interested passionate kind of student. Most people who pick their college course know what the job oppurtunities available to them are. Arts is no exception, this is the reason that many of them are more passionate about their studies as they're primarily doing it for the interest as oppossed to the nice pay package and great job opportunities.
