I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for following me and supporting me with this blog. I especially want to thank the American JD scambloggers who welcomed me into their blogging community even though I’m not American.
The time has come for me to say goodbye. There’s a possibility that I might come back one day, but hopefully not soon. I’ve decided to stop this blog for two reasons. First, my lofty goal was to prevent the opening of new law schools in Canada. As you know, I think more law schools will result in more jobless JDs with tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in non dischargeable student debt. I failed. Since this blog started in December two new law schools got the go ahead from the authorities. Given that i’m just a little nobody I’m not surprised that I failed in my goal. Part of the reason why I wasn’t successful in stopping the profiteering of universities is because as humans we seem to be a lot better at fixing problems than we are at preventing them, which brings me to the second reason why I’m stopping the blog. I can’t be the only person in Canada writing about this and speaking out against it. It’s useless. In ten or so years, when we’re in the same situation that the Americans are in now with tons of students graduating with massive debt and no job, people will be open to the ideas presented in this blog. Until then there’s no use in engaging in what can only be called a sisyphean task.
To all the law grads out there that are jobless: do what you gotta do to survive but please don’t sell crack (I’ve had more than one hit from the google search term “sell crack to pay off JD”). Also, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to talk about things.
To all the greedy bastards out there, especially university officials who just see money when they think about aspiring professionals: eat a rick.
Of course, a song to say goodbye. An oldie but goodie, one of my favs.
