      "Udemy's an okay source of information, but there are just too many people who think it's a replacement for a real education. We've entered this awkward area, culturally or at least socially speaking, where kids that are too young to know any better think services like this are a viable alternative, and most older folks aren't familiar enough with the new interconnectivity and individualist lifestyle to explain why it isn't the case. In other words, our Brave New World is full of suckers who don't know any better and desperate people who have no other choice, and Udemy and similar services are here to capitalize on that."
