I’m no libertarian, but I do know government spending can easily become wasteful. Offer free tuition, and it will do some good while quite likely introducing abuse and a lengthening of the time required to complete an education.
A free market could perhaps produce sufficiently skilled computer programs and plumbers, for example.
However, medical school is expensive, and it is desired that the best quality citizens receive the most valuable training, such as medical training. A society that excludes medical training based on wealth rather than ability will be less likely to produce good doctors.
But I never dreamed that British females would resort to prostitution to pay their way! Here though is a report on just such a phenomenon:
An increasing portion of students in the United Kingdom looking for a way to pay for their tuition are turning to prostitution, according to a new paper by a British medical student.
The problem may be particularly acute among medical students, who generally go to school longer, accrue more debt and have less time for paid employment, according to the paper by Jodi Dixon, who is studying at the University of Birmingham.
That is just shocking. The thought of a rich, bald-headed investment banker paying an innocent 20-something for a sexual act is outrageous. My first instinct is to call for the death penalty!
I submit that while our societies are becoming increasingly nontraditional, increasingly diverse, increasingly corporate, and thus increasingly incapable of governing; perhaps there is a place in some societies for further government-subsidised education.
I know much of the added university expense in the US today comes from the funding of poor students. Basically, in the US, you’re either receiving aid or you’re paying for another’s aid. And our schools are filled with foreign students, while Americans are pushed aside. I have little knowledge of the British university system, however.
To continue on the previous article theme though, I say we stand up to the Social Justice Warrior bullies and uphold the interests of British citizens! If Britain cared for the British, France cared for the French, and America cared for Americans; we might actually reach something near to utopia. If it’s “racist” to care for one’s own, then dare to be racist! Someone must take a stand for what’s morally right. British belles should not be resorting to prostitution.
