High College Grad Unemployment Or Underemployment Is A Good Thing

01 May 2014 @ 21:41

Money Runner has convinced me, he’s made the case, and I hereby issue a True Bill of indictment [tip of the fedora to Stacy McCain]:

Let’s face it, modern college graduates have just left the greatest brainwashing system since the Communists invented the “re-education centers” to set their enemies right. Do you really want those budding neo-Marxists to get on the first rung of the ladder of success?
Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry – to say nothing about the lesser lights of the current regime – are the product of the counter-culture of the 1960s academy. Today it’s no longer the counter-culture but the firmly entrenched establishment – the Ruling Class – who will defenestrate you of you step out of line. “You say you believe marriage is between a man and woman? HOMOPHOBE! No job for you!” Use the wrong term-du-jour for someone with a different skin color … RAAAACIST! Mention that the President seems to spend an inordinate amount of time playing golf: RAAAACIST. Wonder why women need their birth control pills provided by the taxpayer? SEXIST!
You can be sure that the current crop of college graduates firmly believe these things. They have internalized them so that they no longer think about them. Or they have learned to mouth the correct phrases, kept their heads down to stay in college or keep a job. Do you really want these brainwashed robots doing anything but serving coffee until the conditioning wears off?

You know where I stand [even though I’m sitting as I type this]: how about you all?

SIDEDOWNERNOTE: Leave it to RS, commenting over in Stacy’s post, to be a Buzz Kill:

The truly sad thing is, none of these people will learn the correct lesson. No matter what, they will blame anything other than those who lured them into spending years and thousands of dollars on snake oil. Not only did their Fill-In-The-Blank Studies degrees make them unemployable, they destroyed their ability to reason from evidence in front of them to the proper conclusions.

The look of horror on their faces when they are ‘marched into the gas chambers’ will be damn hilarious.

    Excellent points. I taugt colleg freshmen for a while and have zero faith that most of them will be good for anything better than fetching coffee.

    Well, many of them are unemployed, but it’s the ones with the jobs that you have to watch out for.

    My kids call me a “buzz kill” on a daily basis. I wear the appellation proudly as it tells me I’m doing my job.
