All salient points. And maybe this is another one, delayed gratification is not really part of the western culture. People WANT it NOW, whatever it is, because that is the way we are brought up. So maybe high drop-out rates, from anything that is hard nd takes time, is not a problem in Eastern cultures. I don't know if it is or isn't, I was just thinking. Maybe we, the ones that 'waste' our time learning an 'art' are just weirdos and it's the 'normal' people that drop out...
