In short: A college student will suffer FAR MORE STRESS than a wealthy person whose basic needs are cared for.

You’re speaking from a lower-middle class perspective. I relate but upper-middle class and above do not suffer these kinds of issues and wokeness/not-wokeness has nothing to do with any of that.

This is a lower-middle class perspective where “job is everything”, “boss makes life hard”.
But there’s a whole world where that does not apply and it’s all family income based.

I went to college with people who had absolutely no trouble going from feminist studies to starting up eco-windmill farms in the midwest with tie-ins to Africa, or who started political movements among art kids in big cities, or did all the ideological things they dreamed of in college.
I was a scholarship kid and could not afford to finish college. How life goes. But I don’t begrudge those who had family money to start their own dream business ventures. It takes money to make money.
How it goes — and these days, “go woke or go broke” is more the way things are. You’ll find jobs of course if you’ve got a potty mouth, but they’re going to be precisely the kinds of crappy jobs you expect the “wokes” to end up in.
But – they don’t end up in those jobs.

  Ah, but that Starbucks Barista job is for networking. They don’t stay there once they network connections. People with connections drink fancy coffees.
