    People still want to go to Australia / US ? There is China, South America, Europe, Russia, South East Asia, Africa to go and study. There is burning of mills happening by bribing Indians, there is attacks in Russia and Europe from US sponsored terrorists, if you don't go on agreement with GE, they will derail your trains, if you reject to work US as slaves, they will take your stomach out, if you dare to dream of EV, they will take your freedom to dream, if you stop them from controlling your oil fields, they will sponsor terrorism in you country or neighboring countries, to sell their weapons.
