The Sad Truth

"People with Ph.D.’s don’t want to fish for a living. They need something else to do.
"...the people have cultivated themselves to the point where they are unsuited for the work available to them. All these exquisitely schooled, sophisticated people, each and every one of whom feels special, are presented with two mainly horrible ways to earn a living: trawler fishing and aluminum smelting."
