The College Conspiracy

Post by Taco » October 14th, 2015, 8:05 am

College is nothing more than a scam for enslaving the poor and middle class into debt slavery.

College is a complete scam. This video shows more proof that college is a waste of time and money.

Shows how predatory the system is, and how stupid the herd is.

At this point I wonder if I could have gotten a good job in the U.S., would it have even been worth it? I mean, even if you make "good" money, you still pay a lot of taxes, have no chance of finding a good woman, will be deprived of sex, and will likely end up living in a soul-killing suburb. Having a decent job would fix one aspect of it all, but that doesn't do anything for the rest of it. For me, that good job would still have to have a time limit, just a tool used to save money for going abroad.

I have come to believe there is a real "college conspiracy" after doing much research and watching documentaries on the subject. But not only on the part of many universities, it's also with the U.S. government, major banks as well as the power elites operating from behind the scenes. For them the "college industry" in America is a HUGE money maker with both the increasingly high tuition and the large debt load from the student loans many graduates must pay back. So as a result, student loan debt in the U.S. stands at over ONE TRILLION DOLLARS now surpassing credit card debt!!! Not to mention, unlike the latter, student loans can't be discharged through bankruptcy and if a borrower should default on that debt they could face wage garnishment, seizure of tax refunds, to have social security benefits taken, receive a bad credit report, lose a professional license, and even a driver's license (in several U.S. states)!!! In addition, many younger college graduates (Generation Y/Millennials) because of these huge debts have delayed marriage, starting families, buying houses, getting an apartment, or creating new businesses. Thus, making many graduates DEBT/WAGE SLAVES FOR LIFE!!!!

But, things weren't always like this. Many decades ago, a person didn't even need a college degree to get a decent paying job because there were once plenty of factory/manufacturing jobs (like auto, steel, textile, clothing, etc.) that paid enough to have ONE BREAD WINNER and to support a family right out of high school. It helped that those workers had STRONG LABOR UNIONS to provide good wages, safer working conditions, and benefits. Also, during that time up until the 1970's a college education was relatively inexpensive in which tuition even at Ivy league schools such as Harvard FOR ALL FOUR YEARS WAS ONLY A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! Plus, most financial aid back then was mostly in the form of GRANTS (money that doesn't need to be paid back) and many of the post-WWII veterans had used the G.I. Bill to help pay for school thus helping to create the largest middle-class in U.S. history.

However, things began to change radically starting in the 1960's when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into the "Education Act" (1965) that got the government into the student loan business. But also, during this decade, many college campuses and universities had became the hot beds of massive student demonstrations and protest on issues ranging from civil rights, the environment, women's liberation (second wave feminism-funded by the CIA), to the Vietnam War (with Kent State in Ohio as an example). But, I have also read an article from the website entitled, "Crisis of Democracy" in which the power elite from the secretive Trilateral Commission (TLC) were so deeply concerned about such developments as to upset the "status quo" they wanted to stop future generations from uprising against their hidden power structure. One of the major ways to accomplish this was by introducing a "DEBT-FOR-DIPLOMA" system in new graduates would be to worried about getting a job/career to pay off the loans and not be to engaged in student activism or protest against their boss at the workplace. Even Michael Moore mentioned or suggested this in two of his documentary films "Sicko" (2007)and "Capitalism-A Love Story" (2009).

Then many of the factories were shut down and the manufacturing "Blue-collar" jobs had been shipped out of the country to Mexico (through NAFTA), Taiwan, South Korea, Vietnam, China, etc. Next the major corporations began "downsizing" and "outsourcing" many of the "White-collar" jobs to places like India. Not to mention they also, were importing many foreigners from China and India on H1-B work visas to do more technical work. So as a result, colleges are producing more graduates than there are jobs in which they are either unemployed or underemployed. It is not usual this days for many of these degree holders to be working at a fast-food, retail, waitress, janitorial, Starbucks coffee maker, or some other low-wage service sector job while still living at home trying to find a better career path. Others have skipped out on college altogether to get into the trades or join the military (or POVERTY/ECONOMIC DRAFT) to help pay for school.

College isn't a scam. Paying for it is.

When the end user doesn't pay for something directly, prices can go up. Insurance is an example. If you go in for a surgery, you don't directly pay for all of it if you have insurance. Let's say you pay a deductible, and after that, your insurance pays 100%. Even if it doesn't, you just take the bill they give you especially if surgery is for a life or death issue. You've paid your monthly premiums, so what do you, as an individual, care what the doctor who saved your life charges that insurance company that has been draining you dry financially? So the prices go up.

When it comes to college loans, the government pays for a young person's college, temporarily, in the form of student loans. Young people often don't realize how hard it is to earn a living, how much their degrees are worth in terms of money, or how hard it will be to pay of the loan later. They feel like they have a bright future ahead of them. This contributes to the rising costs of education.
