LUKE COME HOME AND LETS GO SEE LUCY
AS MUCH AS I WOULD LOVE TOO, NO MOVIE IS WORTH $800
Here is how the internship scam works. It’s not about a “skills” gap. It’s about a morality gap.
1) Make higher education worthless by redefining “skill” as a specific corporate contribution. Tell young people they have no skills.
2) With “skill” irrelevant, require experience. Make internship sole path to experience. Make internships unpaid, locking out all but rich.
3) End on the job training for entry level jobs. Educated told skills are irrelevant. Uneducated told they have no way to obtain skills.
4) As wealthy progress on professional career path, middle and lower class youth take service jobs to pay off massive educational debt.
5) Make these part-time jobs not “count” on resume. Hire on prestige, not skill or education. Punish those who need to work to survive.
6) Punish young people who never found any kind of work the hardest. Make them untouchables — unhireable.
7) Tell wealthy people they are “privileged” to be working 40 hrs/week for free. Don’t tell them what kind of “privileged” it is.
8) Make status quo commentary written by unpaid interns or people hiring unpaid interns. They will tell you it’s your fault.
9) Young people, it is not your fault. Speak out. Fight back. Bankrupt the prestige economy.

For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
The Legend of Zelda: True Courage
You wanna know something embarrassing? When I was a kid, Zelda boss battles used to scare me. It took a long time before I saw the fun in the challenge of the fight.
Sometimes though it’s the little acts of courage that make all the difference. Because standing up against King Dodongo taught me how to stand up against the other big scary fears of my life.
