I was a high school dropout before basically buying my diploma by means that should be illegal. Now I'm a college dropout. Fortunately, college was free and I didn't accumulate any debt. Now I'm scheduled to earn some money using my mom's political position on our city government. It won't be much, but for several months I will earn enough to have a decent lifestyle here, and I don't have any expenses. Unless I had a way to exploit the system, I probably would not be much better in a first world country.
Well, I won't be able to free-ride for much time, anyway. As soon as I lose my family's support, I will be in for a life of poverty. I'm 22, by the way.
