If You’re Thinking About How to Finance Your Kid’s College

quit worrying.

It’s hard to tell parody from real life on certain college campuses these days, but I’m pretty sure this article is serious. The article, from the Brown Daily Herald, discusses how Brown students’ emotional and academic well-being is suffering because they are so busy fulfilling their “social justice responsibilities” as student activists. (And here I thought that if my parents were paying $60K a year for me to go to school, my first responsibility would be to study!)

What I found especially of interest is that both this and a previous story in the Herald suggest that one incident that took an emotional toll on activists was protesting an appearance on campus by Natan Sharansky and Michael Douglas, who were there to discuss their perspectives on Judaism, Israel and current-day anti-Semitism. Students for Justice in Palestine decided that this would be a dandy occasion to engage in a loud, disruptive anti-Israel protest. An assistant dean was on hand, in part to provide “academic and emotional support” to the protesters, according to the Herald.

So there you have it; a group of Ivy League crybullies worn out from the emotional toll of protesting Natan Sharansky, a former dissident and survivor of years of confinement, including solitary confinement, in harsh Soviet prison camps. Is there a better indication of the decline of American higher-ed culture than a bunch of Ivy Leaguers at risk of emotional breakdown due to the presence of one of the great, stoic heroes of the Cold War on their campus?

Save your money.

Teach your kids something useful.

Such as shooting socialists in the face from a long way away.

Remember, kids: Every time a socialist has his or her brains blown out by a high velocity round, an angel gets his wings.

Thatisall.

    These spoiled brats have no clue what really happens in the world. They take classes in assorted “Studies” and then wonder why they can’t find a job. (Which they then blame on Big business)

    What really annoys me is people like me looking for a job. I’ve been rejected because I don’t have a degree in underwater basket weaving by metrosexual cismales stdies.

    HR departments have figured out that collages today do nothing more than teach this little darlings what they should have learned in the 6th grade.
    I would love to tell all these “Universities” with the tax free billion dollar endowments to start spending them on actual education, or they will lose their tax exempt status and the money.

    Harvard would excrete enough masonry to build a new campus.
