Two-and-a-half quintillion (18 zeros!)

Generated every day.
Yet our inferences
About our world
Are often incorrect.
Here's an example
Of inappropriate use
We look at outliers
Like Bill Gates
And conclude that
Is unessential for us average beavers.
Inappropriate use of information.
For most originating from
Middle and low income families,
Lifetime earnings are higher
With high school diplomas and college degrees
And nothing replaces the
Broadening of horizons;
Exposure to diversity of views
That come with general education.
Yes, life is more than our earnings,
But not everybody finds opportunities
Move in social circles
Inherently different from theirs; Or
Learn leadership qualities
Without access to formal education.
Don't be a sceptic.
As well as
That of others.
