Becoming a doctor is hard. One has to wait to be accepted into a medical
college, study for years, complete a residency etc. You can end up
waiting 10 years to do one little operation. None of us today are

You don't need to be a prophet to realize that any enterprise that does
not challenge but aims for the lowest common denominator will not come to
a good end.
