Squeak, the problem lies right in your comment. When you call a kollel boy elite and a working boy non-elite. I can show you plenty of working young men who accomplish more by being kovea itim than many, many boys sitting in kollel. Sitting in kollel DOES NOT MAKE ONE ELITE!!

You are fighting the system. That is the problem. Kollel is elite in frum society whether you like it or not. Personally, I agree with you that a man with both Torah and a worthwhile job should be regarded as equal to or better than a boy with only Torah. But you and I have been outvoted.

Change the system or adapt to it. But your current view is only going to hurt you.
