Tell that to the snowflakes on college campuses today.

David, Mannington

Well it used to be true.

Authoritarians must control the dialogue in order to remain in the position of authority. Questioning authority used to be a hallmark of the liberal cause -- something's changed on college campuses today.

'Education' has become a massive labor racket only possible with 'loans' from the banking establishment which the government will cover. The result? Every graduating student has a debt the size of a house -- or what could buy one. And what to show for it? Substandard education, and a tenured unionized class that milks its customers (students) for everything they've got and for the next 15 years.

Differing points of view? Compulsion is the hallmark of the liberals, now.
