at its core the entire game seems to be about honesty, fairness, truth, integrity, justice etc...BUT in real world/practical application...not so much. It is a business. Always a tough thing to swallow given where this is coming from and where it should be headed. It is a shame to watch it go down but I also don't think it is healthy to spend time being the finger pointer. You would be amazed out how the universe keeps things in balance without you having to get concerned with it, everyone gets put in their proper place.
The end result is that even if you are doing the right thing in terms of universals, people might not see it that way. Without the support of people you will find yourself alone, nobody trusts you, people out to get you, world just doesn't seem fair.
Do whatever it takes so you can sleep at night, just no reason to expend your precious energy/time trying to keep OTHERS in check. focus on you, plow through.
dollars and sense, if 1L, then boom that is 2 yrs of full tuition, you come and take 100k out of my bank acct. and tell me how to run my business....that is how I make sense of it. Sure it may go against your core principals, ethics, values but this is the real world. billions of other little people doing their thing. Kind of hard to get everyone to see eye to eye and or act right. If they did there wouldn't be much need for us in this field.
