The Fighter

New York Times Magazine

The Marine Corps taught Sam Siatta how to shoot. The war in Afghanistan taught him how to kill. Nobody taught him how to come home.

This is a very long article, but it does not discuss a fundamental problem – most of today’s youth cannot be productive workers in our highly technical society. Siatta could only be a fighter – nothing else.

This is clearly a deficiency of our schools – but our schools only teach what our parents want them to. They do not want to teach them how to learn.
