Amen. Some bleak part of the human condition causes many of us to resist making things better for people, either because we had it worse as kids or because we think struggle is good.
I observed a Twitter thread the other day posted by a physician applauding himself for having the good fortune and tenacity to graduate from medical school without student debt.
So, naturally, he opposes forgiving student debt. His kind of attitude baffles, saddens, and even infuriates me.
