Million Student March" demanding free education and wages that exceed productivity. I wonder if they also think someone else should do their homework for them and should take their exams for them.
BR> Like "Occupy Wall Street", these students complain about the 1% who they think are hoarding all of the wealth and that they got that wealth unfairly or illegitimately. I challenge the students to consider the analysis by commentator Bill whittle (see video below). BTW, the 1% earned either their wealth or they inherited it from someone who earned it. You want that kind of wealth? Earn it!
I assume that the protesters would use that "free" education to get worthwhile degrees such as engineering, medicine, chemistry, etc. instead of the all-too-common pity-me studies such as women's studies, black studies, etc.
Like the "Occupy Wall Street" movement, these protesters represent what our government schools and most of our universities have become: Marxist cesspools for the indolent of mind. They cry for a "safe space", which interpreted, means only "politically correct" speech is allowed.
One student whined, "wouldnt it be nice if the system didnt enslave its people with massive amounts of debt and used some money to pay for peoples schooling" [sic]. Nobody is enslaving anyone with debt except for those who willingly take on that debt. Hence the "higher education bubble" that threatens global financial stability just as did the easy-and-cheap-mortgages-for-the-uncreditworthy "housing bubble" of a few years ago.
My wife and I worked our way through college and three graduate degrees, borrowing only $500 from my parents for my first term in college. I see no reason why everyone else can't do the same.
