The High Cost of Education(?)

by | Apr 8, 2018 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The March, 2018 copy of Imprimis, Hillsdale college’s excellent information newsletter, basically recitations of speeches given at the college by prominent scholars, educators and politicians, dwelt on the strategic challenge posed by China. China today is or should be, a subject of extreme importance for Americans because it is no longer the China of Pearl S. Buck or the Sand Pebbles, the opium trade or warlords. 
David Goldman, a columnist for Asia Times in his remarks at Hillsdale, on 2/21/18, said China was motivated by “insecurity and fear,” the fear of domination by Western Powers because a shattered China lacked central leadership like it did under its centuries of Emperor’s and todays Communist Party. China is fragile and they know it. Their strength comes in unity, even forced.
To compete against the rest of the world and not just simply reman a battle ground over which Western powers spent a hundred years humiliating them, the Chinese know they must proceed under the weight of their own historical circumstances. Accordingly, China will never be a Democracy. They don’t know how! Its entire history is based on subjugation by its emperors, contenders for power, and tribal warlords all administered by the “coercion of the unwilling.” 
Goldman noted China’s internal problems, specifically its political instability, is held together only by its historical “imperial culture.” That aside, China, unified by self preservation and a strong desire not to return to the decades of terror, the Chinese Communist Party, after Mao, opened Pandoras Box, so to speak, and allowed the forces of commercialism to escape, something the Chinese have been best at for ever. Today, the streets of China are commercial successes; young people striving to fit in and the best method open to them is education, especially in the sciences and mathematics.
Goldman points out that entry into Chinese universities is by merit alone. Not even President and Party Chairman Ji’s children can presume to enter into any university without competing with every other Chinese student in their age group. There are no favorites. If they can’t cut, they don’t get in.
Consequently, China has become a technological centerpiece for scientific advancement because they encourage their children to enter the fields of mathematics, engineering and the sciences. They turn out smart engineers by the thousands and not one of them by accident. 
Here, in America, Progressivism has turned our schools into nursery’s for weak children (snowflakes) kept weak by the inclusive policies of combined fear of Western advancement. They prefer the fields of social science, women’s studies, Black studies, pervert sex studies, but never the Humanities, Civics, or American history. Their design of course, is political, to neutralize Americas past history of advancement so it can no longer economically dominate the world. Add to that affirmative action mandates and Americas output of scholars capable of challenging the Chinese, almost ceases to exist. 
A solution: Higher education loans and grants from the Federal Government, should be discontinued for any discipline outside science and mathematics. That will solve the loan/debt crisis for the thousands of students taking Liberal Arts courses for which few jobs exist outside of the fast food industry. Then, make those unallocated funds available for students who enter Science and Math courses, and make ‘em “free.It was done several years ago for our depleted nurses training programs, It can be done again. 
It won’t take long for America’s pool of real talented, naturally gifted, science inclined students, of any race, to fill up the classrooms of universities math and science courses everywhere. Gifted students will no longer fear being denied a seat to a discipline they are capable of fulfilling because an Affirmative Action student gets it by an unconstitutional but still mandated entitlement. Today, no one should be entitled to a seat at the table without earning it. We have abandoned the gift of enjoying the fruits of our own efforts. Socialism kills initiative. 
Today’s American progressive education systems is a disaster, educationally, socially and productively. Money is wasted on unnecessary degree programs, wasted on students incapable of lasting out a full term, and on students incompetent to even be there at all, simply to fulfill the demands of social justice engineers. It must come to an end. Let’s spend our school money wisely and get the real bang for our buck. The Chinese are.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, let’s go get ‘em!

George McClellan

George G. McClellan, a California native, was a Regular Army veteran and served a post-war Korea tour. His post-army professional career covered 43 years in law enforcement, including the California Highway Patrol and the US Naval Investigative Service (NCIS). With the latter, he became a world traveler visiting and working in many countries from the Philippine Islands to the United Kingdom, Asia, the Middle-East, Bosnia, Europe, Russia, and India. He retired from the NIS at Naval Air Station, Atlanta, Ga., and has remained in the north Georgia area since 1990 as a co-owner of a Security Consulting company. He earned a Certified Protectional Professional (CPP) certification from the American Society for Industrial Security and a Fraud Examiner Certification (CFE).

He has published a historical biography on a namesake, a John Jacob Astor Fur Company member who explored a route west and back, after Lewis and Clark. Early American history, Celtic influence on America, and conservative politics remain his greatest interests. He is also a bagpiper since 1975. He and his wife, since 1965, now resides in Gilmer County, Ga.

The Rising Tide of a World Revolutionary War

The Rising Tide of a World Revolutionary War

Yes, a war has already been declared against the United States Constitution. Now we see clearly that our freedom is near to being tossed over a cliff. Under such tyranny years ago, the American Revolution was fought and won. If we so choose once again, nothing can stop the Second American Revolution that is now brewing…

Democrats’ Human Rights Egregious Duplicity

Democrats’ Human Rights Egregious Duplicity

Biden and his clueless stooges keep falsely and shamelessly telling the world how much they care about Human Rights. The very Human Rights that Biden and the Democrats shamelessly and repeatedly remind a flabbergasted world, how Racist Americans are. If we paraphrase Churchill’s speech to describe the State of the Union under Biden’s watch, it would look like this: “Never in the field of diplomacy have so many been betrayed by so few.”

The Emotional Submission Of Football Fans

The Emotional Submission Of Football Fans

There is great controversy and social divide over the jab issue within families and friends. What sports owners and coaches don’t realize is the fact that the American population will only allow so many moves of the goalpost before they don’t participate in supporting the attendance when a front seat at home will suffice just fine…

Which Part of Your Genetic Makeup is Jekyll, and Which is Hyde?

Beal warns us the coronavirus vaccines could cause serious illness for which there is no cure, and they could cause weird mutations in the natural world which we cannot control – which perhaps we are already seeing as we move from delta, to mu to nu… and possibly soon needing to use the Klingon alphabet. There’s a lot that could go wrong, as a result of genetic changes brought about by the lab-made sequences in the vaccines…

The Great Coup of 2020 and the New American State

The Great Coup of 2020 and the New American State

Here we are, ten short years later, and the Occupy Wall Street movement has become the official platform of the Democratic Party. Their hatred of our country is no longer fringe – it is now mainstream, and it controls the White House, as well as both chambers of Congress. We are not a democracy. We are not a Democratic Republic either. We are a banana republic, with Joe Biden as our Banana in Chief…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #4

I’m trying to save my husband’s life! Please, help me. What can be done to keep my husband from being put on a ventilator? – If I have T-cells in my body after recovering from COVID, is there any chance of me unknowingly being a carrier of COVID and giving it to my unvaccinated elderly parents? – I heard Dr. McCullough say that once you’ve had Covid19, you cannot get it again. Does that include all variants, ie, Delta?

We are heading full-speed towards an economic meltdown. A recession even. We have no budget for fiscal year 2022, and do not expect one to come anytime soon. The federal government is likely headed towards a shutdown here in the next three weeks. Have you tried shopping lately? Notice how the shelves are much less stocked than usual?
