I have just started taking classes at a college to maybe help broaden the choices of a vocation (or maybe satisfy my parents ambition :( ), which even though I would rather spend the time doing spiritual practices, i have found it to be tolerable and a great source of compassion for the ignorance of the whole institution. But the problem lies with this English class (which I assume is required to get any sort of degree) where its all about expressing your "opinion" and constructing "argumentative" essays and even the course material is a modern psychologist's book on identity and stereotypes (which most likely express's the acceptance of a false sense of self). I just don't know if I should withstand the requirements of the class and somehow create a false subjective opinion and just do what they want me to do. I'm trying to strengthen my ethics and upright speech but modern education and other aspects of society seem to push you to do the opposite. Basically should I take action and possibly find a better class or accept the situation I have blindly put myself into? I do try to hear the will of my being but my concentration is poor and whenever I make a decision it always seems to be wrong and misguided. :( hopefully this can be of some use to someone else and not as personal as it sounds. This site is a beacon of light in very dark times.

Having an education and career are important to survive in this world. It is also important to know how to wisely deal with the people of this world, and deal with situations we do not like.

Our role here is to be involved with society and help others: perhaps in your school experience you can learn all these things, not only to help yourself by building a financial foundation for your life, but also so you will have the experience and skill to understand and help other people.
