Higher education is an attack on the middle class. Gullible children and their gullible parents are convinced that they should not marry and start working after high school.
Instead, they go to “college”. They learn little of value. Many get so side-tracked by alcohol, sex, and drugs that they never get on track to have families. They end up as serfs, slaving away for giant businesses. And, an additional burden is to spend their working years as taxpayers supporting growing, useless governments. The accumulated stress of futility and dept leads many to die before withdrawing money from social security.
Babylon is happy.
This link sums it up very well:
Is there any hope for the future? Digital degrees. On line credits. Costs can be reduced. Education can be improved. No one in the system wants that.
