Why Higher Education Should Be Free

It’s a travesty that in modern day America, higher education is still not free, and by the large part is administered by private companies! Almost every progressive agrees that education is a human right, and that it is the obligation of the tax payers to fund students to study whatever they want. The benefits to society of free education are obviously numerous. Studies have shown that the more educated a population is, the more prosperous and forward thinking the society is. Education of any kind, in any subject, raises the economic productivity of any person, because intelligence is a social construct, and all subjects are equal.

Currently though, capitalism penalizes graduates in Critical Race Theory (like myself) and womyn’s studies because corporations refuse to hire them, with the exception of McDonald’s and Starbucks who refuse to pay them a $15 minimum wage! How are students supposed to pay back tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt on less than a $15 minimum wage??

Bigots argue that college students are some of the most privileged people in the world, and that that the non-educated white working class, 70% of whom voted for Trump, rightfully object to funding people more privileged than they, out of their hard-earned paychecks. But these people, being non-educated, fail to see the abundant economic benefits that will result from this investment in free education. Free education is an INVESTMENT in our kids’ futures! It is an INVESTMENT in the economy! It will have a positive net return for the economy, and therefore for everybody.

Other closet-bigots will also argue that education is already abundantly available for free online, and all you have to do is google what you’re interested in and start reading. But what these uptight morons don’t understand is that this doesn’t give you the “college experience” where you get to socialize, protest about social justice issues, get smashed and have lots of sex, while getting educated by accredited professors with large pensions and tenure.

It’s time for us to create laws allowing anyone to study what they want on the tax-payer’s dime, because education is a human right, even if it has to be provided at high cost by other people. As we covered in one of our previous articles, corporations also need to be forced to hire our college grads, because many of them are currently refusing to do so. It’s time to create a country that places education at the front and center of society, because it is only through education, that we can truly change the world for the better.

Rather than free education, I’m thinking we should get rid of money altogether. No more millionaires and billionaires. I want equality. Let’s share everything, work together for the common good, and be one big happy family. What do you think?

I agree, Since none of the large governments will support this we need to start our own communities.
I am aware of a compound in Guyana that can be had for cheap.
we can create our own communist community, one in which everyone lives together in harmony and works for the common good.
There is some clean up work that needs done but it worked there before. That is until someone brought in a tainted batch of kool-aid.
I’m sure we can make it work this time.

Hopefully with the push of social activists across the country, we can have the federal government take total control of all colleges and universities. I think this would be the best solution because 1) the government knows how to run institutions as proven by countless examples, 2) they know what our wants and needs are even for those who think differently, 3) they can place people in careers based on oppression versus that of aptitude (put the white man in his place), 4) the taxpayers will have to pay for it and 5) so we can get rid of all of those racist mascots. Just think about it…. USA University

Wow – what fantastic ideas ITTIA. Whatever we can do to get people more connected to the system and the government more involved in peoples lives is what we need to be doing – our freedom demands it!!!

Of Course higher education is a right, as is primary and secondary education, housing, food, clothing, guaranteed minimum income, health care, child care services, reproductive health services, transportation, mental health protections and wellness, house cleaning, tire rotations, hair cuts and pedicures, vacation rentals, varietal wines and cheeses, concert tickets, furniture, closet space, fishing trips, driveway sealants and assorted paints and sundries, and anyone who thinks differently is obviously a NAZI. I’m talking to you Trump.

Sorry to have to flag you BCH but exploiting cows for their secretions and murdering our finned fellows is a big no no. There is no way our government should be paying for immoral animal exploitation while desperately in need children go without sex-reassignment treatment.

Has anyone heard from John? He’ll be very sick and upset. We’re a little worried about him and feel personally responsible as we’d assured him that this is a SAFE-SPACE. If you’re reading this John please get in contact with ourselves MDB or Pbier – the Accredited Times has post trauma resources that you can access.

“Fishing trips” is murderous speciesism at its worst.
