That is pretty much what I figured out when I went back to school in 2001 to get my BBA.  Give the instructors what they wanted.  Jump through their hoops the way they want you to.  It worked, remembering what my father told me long ago about a college degree.  It doesn't mean that you know everything the degree is supposed to represent, it means that you know how to properly finish a course study and find the answers needed to do so.

"You demonstrate success or failure according to your habitual trend of thought. In you which is the stronger – success thoughts or failure thoughts? If your mind is ordinarily in a negative state, an occasional positive thought is not sufficient to attract success. But if you think rightly, you will find your goal, even though you seem to be enveloped in darkness." ~ Paramahansa Yogananda - "The Law of Success".

Here is how to succeed in slumlording, which may become even more useful if they really evict 4 million families next year; will probably get back on the NYT Bestseller list. I would pull out a quote, but I gave mine away to an aspiring property owner.

He [Donald Trump] more or less completely destroyed the old Republican Party in 2016, while the damage he did to Democrats was lasting in a different way. He forced them to abandon their pretensions to kumbaya liberalism and announce themselves as the elitist authoritarians they’d always been.

Everyone has a responsibility to not only tolerate another person's point of view, but also to accept it eagerly as a challenge to your own understanding. And express those challenges in terms of serving other people.

The single biggest and most consistent difference between the successful Asian countries and those Western countries that continue to struggle with COVID-19, is universal adoption of high-quality mask wearing and strict adherence to social distancing measures passed, and enforced by,national governments. These governments correctly calculated in advance that the costs of producing and distributing masks for everyone, imposing social distancing, and supporting the poor through short but effective lockdowns would be dwarfed by the longer term economic damage of continuing viral surges and the ongoing stimulus required as long as the virus rages unaddressed.

“At the beginning of a pestilence and when it ends, there’s always a
propensity for rhetoric. In the first case, habits have not yet been
lost; in the second, they’re returning. It is in the thick of a calamity
that one gets hardened to the truth – in other words, to silence.”
(Albert Camus, The Plague)
