Suli Breaks Video Response

In the Suli Breaks video I found I thought the message was this: 
What I got from this video was that your setbacks aren't necessarily failures. By no means do I mean that Suli says that its ok to not strive to do well. He empathizes the fact to do good in school and the fact that the info learned will be beneficial towards your future. But he also says that the setbacks aren't failures. Suli says how just because Charrel couldn't do the sums doesn't mean she's dumb. He goes on to say that an exam result doesn't make you what you are. Just because I could get a 60% on a History test doesn't mean that I'm stupid and lost because I could go ahead and pull a 100% on a math test. Cue the title "I Will Not Let An Exam Result Decide My Fate". In total I agree with Suli that just because I don't know the names of Julius Caesars murderers, or other information like that, doesn't mean that I will fail in life. As you can see, this was the message that I took from the video. 

However, what I saw in the video was Suli Breaks given numerous examples of why society is wrong he gave examples why society is wrong like, how society doesn't support abortion yet looks down on teen parents or that society is wrong for making exam results decide who you are. He says much in this video of how society is misleading you and that you need to be able to think independently and that being able to do that is the most important life skill. He also goes on about how society is misleading not only students but parents when he says that the boys mom will lie to him because that what society wants her to do. Therefore, what I saw Suli saying was how majority of people are being mislead by society.
