Trust is highest requirement

I believe that when someone pursues higher education, they do so to get better pay and to use their knowledge to benefit people. In some fields of study, such as law or psychology, that is a very important.

But lawyers and psychologists take advantage of those they are supposed to help, that is immoral, unethical and destructive behavior that can push society down. If allowed to perpetuate, it becomes a self-destructive system that people either decide to correct, or allow it all to fail, bringing down both good and bad with it. When good-intended people get into those fields of study, it is good for them to see a healthy system operating successfully than to think that they had to get into negative behavior to succeed.
