it’s not jealousy.
That doesn’t take away from other people’s chances for trying.
It’s a basic fact about generational wealth.
Conditions were different in the past. Ill be an example:
I got a high paying job as a systems analyst once without a college degree.
I was a temp I walked in the door and I proved myself and they needed me and I ended up getting hired
I was the Excel guy.
the guy with the ponytail.
I was the only person who knew how certain things worked because I made them and it made them money and they needed it.
That was a long time ago.
Is there a pathway in companies for a random temp to come in that must copy and paste and takes over a whole department’s needs he doesn’t even want?
Much less likely now because the culture of programming has changed.
Group programming started around then and now that’s about all the programming there is.
People had paths to success that were different in the past and that’s just how it is.
You can do anything you believe and I believe all that.
But don’t blame people for being unable to follow pasts that don’t exist anymore.
And I will always criticize the people that lie about their paths to success.
Maybe being lied to is inspirational but I don’t see why it’s necessary.
