The College Conspiracy Scam

This documentary discusses several important points, including:
  • Why higher education in the US is a corporatist racket
  • Why tuition fees continue to rise, i.e. government subsidies
  • The crippling debt that students accumulate and how this debt is preventing young people from saving money and investing, especially in gold and silver.
  • The link between higher education and the legal industry
  • The dearth of farmers, miners and other productive members of the economy due to greater desire among young people to be bankers and lawyers
  • The lack of skills that college and university courses actually provide and why an apprenticeship or work experience would be far better
  • The decreasing value of university degrees due to their increased prevalence
  • The future of education: online learning
