Re: UCLA Student Protests.....THEY ARE IN THE RIGHT!Submitted by BmoreBrawler on Wed, 11/25/2009 - 02:42
*This post is sort of in response to the "UCLA Students Riot" post. I was inspired by all the knee-jerk "liberal students" bashing in that thread.
Young people, and through them ,our nation's future, are the victims in this whole debacle in higher education. The only winners are the socialists.
1. Subsidize college so that costs go through the roof, even though just about anyone including the poor could put themselves through school with minimal borrowing at the time when subsidies were enacted.
2. Academia, traditionally liberal, is subsidized, leading to more students getting more indoctrination from more entrenched socialist educators.
1 + 2 = More students graduate with degrees, making a college degree worth less while costing more because of skyrocketing tuitions. Students are brainwashed from left-wing slant in college. Entrenched Academia, entrusted with research in social and physical sciences, is beholden to the leftists that keep the money flowing from subsidized loans.
The students at UCLA are right to protest. They are the victims. In this situation, tuition freezes are entirely justified(as long as they are met with corresponding budget cuts).
