Meet Verlyn Klinkenborg.
In a recent editorial in the NYT she says
What many undergraduates do not know — and what so many of their
professors have been unable to tell them — is how valuable the most
fundamental gift of the humanities will turn out to be. That gift is
clear thinking, clear writing and a lifelong engagement with literature.
Frankly, I am sick of this shit.
The reason I curse is because no non-cursing language can convey how utterly sick and tired, not to mention, angry I am with shills and whores of Big Education desperately trying to;
1. Rationalize their own stupid decisions to major in worthless subjects
2. Continue to vampire off of naive young 17 and 18 year old children by making them pay inflated prices for worthless degrees so the legions of aging worthless humanities professors can avoid having to work real jobs in the real world.
The Education Bubble is bursting, just like the housing bubble. And you David Lereah's of the education industry are being exposed for the shills you are.
Do you even listen to yourselves???
"The gift of "humanities is the gift of "clear thinking, clear writing, and a life-long engagement with literature?"
So, then we could agree to eliminate all humanities and liberal arts departments from all universities because there is a cheaper alternative called "the library?" And since you academian leftist jounralism types care soooooooo much for the "chilllllldreeeennnnnn" you would in all intellectual honesty say, "hey, don't spend $50,000 on a degree when you can get the same thing for free at the local library AND HAVE THE EXACT SAME EMPLOYMENT PROSPECTS?"
Or are we going to go the same old boring "education is an experience, it isn't all about the money" route?
You might as well say "housing prices always go up."
The only thing saving you now is the naivety and ignorance of the average 17 year old who has been indoctrinated and brainwashed by ass-kissing, brown-nosing teachers and parents who have convinced them they are great and can do no wrong. That "follow your heart and the money will follow." Not to mention you've convinced these undeveloped minds they're entitled to an education, even if it is in Transgendered-Ethiopian-18th Century-French-Poetry-Studies, and even if it will cripple them financially for the rest of their lives.
The only thing worth less than the degrees in the humanities are the whores, charlatans and scum pimping those degrees in academia, quite literally parasiting off of the children they so hypocritically claim to be helping. They're no different than the bankers and mortgage brokers scum we've all been told to hate who brought the housing bubble.
So do America and the children a REAL and GENUINE favor. June is Worthless Degree Awareness Month. How about you fight back and buy "Worthless" for either a loved one about to attend college, yourself, or hell, if there's any foundation or conservative institution that really wants to implement some change, how about you spend a little bit of that money on buying an entire high school or school district copies of this book? How about flooding a high profile college campus with copies of it? You want to undo all the socialist brainwashing these kids get and are going to get? How about you start at the source and launch an all out campaign where the left is weakest? Their liberal-voter factories - academia.
