S’true! A large part of what wrong with America’s “higher education” system can be laid at the feet of the universities, but not all of it. A lot of it has to blamed upon the students and their clownish attempts at decision making and responsibility.
If you’ve ever wondered why so many of the entitled, mis-raised Millennial Snowflakes have turned to Socialism, you might want to blame race or, rather, the Left’s rendition of racial politics. While perhaps counterintuitive, the SJWs’ ideas of “race relations” seems like a good bet for being a large part of why this has happened.
Understand two things: people in general are fairly self-centered and self-serving, with the Millennials being more than a bit more so; and the Left’s whole agenda when it comes to non-Whites is giving them Whites’ money. This simply means that these Millennials have been drawn to the only political-economic system that promises to give them money and give the non-Whites money.
It’s really just a way for them to get a piece of the pie that their side wants to give to others while not triggering an attack from the SJWs.
That’s pretty much how Socialism was and Democratic Socialism is. The later is just the former with the energy, acrobatics, and attention seeking so prevalent among Millennials. In the end, the results are exactly the same and exactly as bad.
Here’s the thing – until we, the People enact a societal climate change, there’s always going to be snowflakes at Christmas. And they’re always going to be attacking some number of the trappings and trimmings of this American holiday, much like how they’ve been attacking its very name.
But then, this makes sense when one realizes that what they want for Christmas is something to be offended by. 😉
Periodically – normally either while they’re losing an election or immediately after having lost one – our domestic enemies will bemoan the “education gap” between them and Americans, who vote for Republicans. The rest of the time they tend to be patronizing and sarcastic about it and those “ignorant bumpkins” in rural America.
Yet, what is truer is that there is a widening Indoctrination Gap between the Leftists and the American people. A couple of generations of ever-increasing left-wing indoctrination being added to- or disguised as “higher education” has both guaranteed that college graduates would at least lean Left and that Americans would more and more reject the institutions that did this and which continue to escalate their doing of it.
And, to cement things and increase both the divide and the Leftists’ indoctrination of the college educated, the graduates’ incurred debt, declining ROI on their education, and the need or implanted desire to move to higher cost of living urban centers, all conspire to both separate the two groups further and to make Americans think poorly of college as path to take in life.
But hey! What do I know? I’m just a deplorable, knuckle-dragging ignoramus…
