Quick question: isn't the massive debt accrued by attending college that many learn to shrug off putting us in a culture of indemnitude? Med school is $125/year. We're told it doesn't matter, we'll pay it off eventually. But why do we have to face this kind of debt in the first place? It seems to put us into a slave mentality at worst, or condition us to treat massive, unbridled national debt with little more than a shrug. Ahh -- it'll get paid off eventually. And even if it doesn't, well, it hasn't exactly hurt us yet anyway. Right?
