"Trusting and unworldly kids attending university today are victims of a gigantic fraud..."


"There are intangible reasons to justify say a year or two at university as a bridging experience between childhood and adult status. But otherwise, unless studying for a traditional career such as medicine or law, to a very large degree trusting and unworldly kids attending university today are victims of a gigantic fraud.... luring the simple-minded seeking letters after their names....
    "The modern university is today largely a scam, exploiting the vulnerable with its ever expanding range of non-intellectual bullshit degrees.... academic nonsense, in which the participants waste their lives at public expense, pointlessly pursuing esoteric imaginary elements of their utterly bogus purported field of study.... [while universities are] transforming themselves into competitive commercial enterprises while maintaining a veneer, largely imagined, of being intellectual institutions."

          ~ Bob Jones, from his post 'The Contemporary World's Biggest Fraud'

  1. University has - or at least, can have, another legitimate purpose: networking with other smart, driven, intellectual, young people. E.g. look at the number of companies co-founded by graduates (or sometimes, dropouts) of MIT.
