latest crop of cretins best and brightest of the new generation are protesting for free tertiary education again.
Their strategy this time: close the universities. Because that makes so much sense. It’s a bit like campaigning for orgasms by cutting off your penis. It seems that the shaggy-haired sandal squad are unable to recognise the giant metaphorical pistol they have aimed squarely at their unwashed collective foot. Then again, I’ve been informed that I’m “part of the problem” and “too old to understand”. I wasn’t aware that logic had an age limit, but there you go.
However, I actually DO understand why the instigators of this movement are so adamant about not paying fees: A scan of the jobs page of any local newspaper will swiftly reveal that there aren’t any organisations recruiting people with degrees ending in the word “studies”. Their future employment prospects almost certainly involve the phrase, “Would you like fries with that?”
The old joke about what you say to someone with a PhD in Humanities is a chilling reality in this country.
Right now, I can’t think of a witty, or even pithy reply.You see, I’m so pleased to see that you’re still here. Far too early for an unseemly happy dance, but welcome back.
Fair enough. When you DO decide it’s time for your unseemly happy dance, please be sure to post a video.
That’s a movement here, too. Free education. Like those universities are self-sustaining and professors can go on teaching indefinitely without compensation. The grubs of society.
I’m with Dina. Welcome back to the living.
That’s kind of you to say, but my last EEG came back negative.
