Anti-education

A while back I had a post featuring Ray Bradbury’s thoughts on education. In a nutshell, he was down on college and pro library. Since his opinions mirror mine, I deemed him quite wise.

It turns out there is a web site, a book, even a movement, that carries forth the same views. The website is called uncollege.org. (The book is linked off it.) Its argument is, fundamentally, that college is a rip off and if you want to get educated, just go out there and learn. Good stuff.

Of course, education has never been about getting educated, it’s been about getting a piece of paper that says you’re not retarded and also giving you the opportunity to form “connections” with like minded scum who can then go about destroying the world. As far as that goes, higher education has been quite successful.

    I agree – College is crap. College is a bunch of spoiled punks getting wasted and chasing pussy for a few years between High School and then finally going into The Real World. I went to College for a year and found being surrounded by those idiots irritating as shit. People who believe they are obliged to spend all that money so their kids can fuck around without adult supervision have been completely scammed. Humphh humphh humpphhhera hurrumphhh!!!

    Yeah, I’ve heard about that. I think it’s John Sykes singing and playing guitar, but it sounds phony.
