‘Higher Education’: A Model That Can’t Work

Image result for images of crowded college campus

I’ve been asking what the country is supposed to do, a few years down the road, with millions of unemployable college graduates saddled with unrepayable debt and ridiculous degrees in meaningless pseudo-subjects. In other words, with millions of people who will, in all probability, never be productive.

Why has college become so useless? Because today’s higher education system is predicated on a model of perpetual expansion. Hence absurd ideas like free universal tuition. Create more universities, expand the ones we already have, and pack in more and more students, add more and more teachers and administrators–complete with high salaries and lavish pensions–and pray the nation’s economy doesn’t implode as more and more people become non-productive. Like, what are you going to do with a degree in Feminist Surf-boarding besides teaching Feminist Surf-boarding to other poor saps? What are you going to produce? What can you possibly do but stay in college–somehow?

It’s madness to remove such a big chunk of the population from the productive sector: consumers with nothing to consume, except more “education”!

Oh, but that’s okay! Soon we’ll have robots doing all the work, with nothing left for human beings to do but fornicate and “learn” more drivel.

That’s the plan–and it stinks.

  1. So pathetic and regrettable. Even now, I see young men in grocery stores
    who are supposed to be stocking shelves, and instead, they are singing,
    dancing, talking and laughing and cursing– everything except what they are paid to do.

  2. It’s laughable, perhaps more correctly, we should shed tears for our society. I recently spoke to a college student whom was assigned to write a letter to an elected official in favor of Planned Parenthood as a required part of his class. I can’t imagine that being legal.

  3. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” Thomas Jefferson

    1. “But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced.The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people…” John Adams

    2. You’re right – “It stinks.” Government education, climate change, gun control – in. Cognition, independence, history – out.

  4. You have painted a bleak picture of the future. I see the rock not made with hands filling the whole earth. I see the knowledge of the LORD covering the earth as the waters cover the seas. I see God’s perfect plan for His creation coming to perfection. I see the glass half full.
