A Yale acquaintance was ranting just the other day on Facebook about the stupid rightwing narrative of success through hard work. College tuition prices have become so high, she said, that no one without means can possibly get ahead. I replied that I had met a fair number of people who had become wealthy and successful through perseverance and hard work, who had never attended an elite university at all. And she got angry, delivered a few ad hominems, and stormed off.
This political ad represents a perfect reply to her nonsense.
Thanks to Stumbling On Truth, who forwarded it to me.
