No one can figure out how and why America’s youth have borrowed a collective $1 trillion for college tuition,


and yet received so little education and skills in the bargain. Today’s campuses have become as foreign to American traditions of tolerance and free expression as what followed the Weimar Republic. To appreciate cry-bully censorship, visit a campus “free-speech” area. To witness segregation, walk into a college “safe space.” To hear unapologetic anti-Semitism, attend a university lecture. To learn of the absence of due process, read of a campus hearing on alleged sexual assault. To see a brown shirt in action, watch faculty call for muscle at a campus demonstration. To relearn the mentality of a Chamberlain or Daladier, listen to the contextualizations of a college president. And to talk to an uneducated person, approach a recent college graduate.
If all that is confusing, factor in the Trimalchio banquet of campus rock-climbing walls, students glued to their iPhone 6s, $200 sneakers, latte bars, late-model foreign cars in the parking lot, and yoga classes. Affluence, arrogance, and ignorance are quite a trifecta.Weimar America | PJ Media

Your Say

Well I guess the only thing for recent college grads to do is go back for that Masters Degree.

Wait until Uncle Bernie is elected. If you think the price is high now, see what his Free Plan costs.

My college years were '49-'53, grad school '53-'55. Every class, and most labs were taught by profs. Every prof, including full profs taught classes at every level. Every prof I ever knew touted the placement of departmental grads in good jobs or quality grad programs. That's by far what they were most proud of professionally. I wonder what they are proud of these days, or if they have any pride at all.

Just another graduate to the Hall of Heroes. Like his comrades, tuition repaid the hard way. He made his life matter.

Good one Stug. Thanks.

As my ol' gray haired Pappy used to say, "You got your colored folks and you got your nigga's and they ain't the same."

When my dad and uncle were in college practically every curriculum required chemistry and calculus and at a minimum college algebra. Those days are long gone and students today can even configure a bunch of courses and name their own degree.

No one can obtain a degree in White Studies but anyone can obtain a sheep skin in African studies or gender studies and the like. Four years of life completely wasted and I predict we will have far more "ology" and "studies" degrees with todays yoots than we will chemistry, mathematics, engineering, medical, health or other science and tech degrees that, along with a Masters Degree, will help a grad find employment.

And, when these numb nuts wind up in the job market and are only offered line jobs at places like Burger King, they will blame white people and a system that is stacked against them while refusing to work at all.
