Reminder to those struggling over choosing a career path or dealing with parental pressure

In the sense of a micro look at recent history, you're correct; at viewing the history of mankind from a macro lens, you're very incorrect. Second law of thermodynamics, my friend. All of civilization will one day fall. Putting too much security into any physical item of value isn't very wise. I'm sensing the Dunning-Kruger effect at work here. Regardless, best of luck with your application process, and I appreciate the dialogue.

Also, in terms of investments, I highly recommend that if you manage to achieve the wealth you so desperately seek to acquire, please diversify across numerous currencies and index funds. Don't just rely on the United States because you think we can't lose.
