Nathan, good discussion. Wall street is definately not a friend of investors. They exist to make money on fees, not help others. "Where Are the Customer's Yachts?" written in 1940 shows this has been going on forever.

However, investing does need thoughtful study and behavior to be successful, so aspiring investors shouldn't think it is easy. They have to study and learn, then put it into practice to get good.
