Groin has some very simple and practical solutions which will help the world recover from collapse. The first of which, is simply that college should be shortened from four years to three years. I know this may sound ridiculous too you, but the reality is that this is common sense.
There are many reasons. Lets start with the fact that you wake up every day and turn on the TV only to see disillusioned youth protesting and disrupting to the point of being de-facto quasi- rioting, not unlike in the film Cosmopolis. You see it today in America with the ‘Not My President’ protests nationwide (centered in DC and NY). If Trump is ‘Not Their President” – then maybe they should understand that it is ‘Not Their Holiday’ – and get their leftist heinies back to school/work. The real reason they are rioting is because they buy into the enslaving idea that they must indebt themselves greatly to the state in order for a superfluous leftist 4 year education. It is a road to nowhere.
‘Youth’ protests are a new worldwide phenom. That all started with the Arab Spring in Egpyt, and spread to the slums of France/London, and now we see it here in the states. When I went to UC Davis the Muslim Brotherhood came to the lunch quad with flags supporting Palestinian suicide bombers on a regular basis, whenever some shrapnel bomb would go off in Israel.
I had to take about 60 course to graduate from the UC ( I graduated in 2003). That is way to many courses. When you break down the four years of college you see that two years roughly are spent in the major and two years in the general ed./minor. Common sense dictates that students should have received sufficient general education in high school , and that much of general ed. in college is redundant, and results in more student debt. Student debts account for a large percentage of national GDP and pose a threat to economic stability for the nation – due to failed reimbursements. Another thing is that semesters take forever compared to the quarter system , almost as if the semester system was designed for vacations and protests.
Furthermore, colleges serve as indoctrination centers for leftist thought, they fail protect free speech for conservatives, and force the community to pay for controversial radical views to be propagated – views which the citizenry often do not agree with, by en large.
Savings from college being shortened to 3 years could be used to reduce the national and state debts, pay for other services (such as homeless shelters or mental health institutions – which could be handy for leftist students at a later date) help students focus on their major, help students save $, have students get 25% less exposure to leftist indoctrination, and last but not least – give less time overall for students to be loitering around campus (protesting). Idle hands are the devil’s playground. Let’s push them out into the real world so they can leave the ivory tower at an earlier date!
