>>295564>How important is a college education when discussing or participating in politics?
It's not important at all. You can read and learn the same material on your own time and without needing to pay for a college class.>>295596>He said people without college degrees should be silent and their opinion isn't "rooted in any intellectual thought process".
Isn't it similar to how people are advocating for how "people should be banned from politics unless they served in the military
What's wrong with working at Mickey D's or Wally World? If they're offering people a decent pay in exchange for them providing a service in their establishment, what's the issue? In fact, you'd actually learn MORE
from working at either of those two places than you would going to the average college because you learn real life skills; like public speaking, accounting, inventory, maintenance, managing, etc.. The only "universal" issue that I'm aware of in regards to working in either of those two places (But, isn't exclusive to them because it happens everywhere, even in high level white-collar positions
) is that retards insist on working there their entire lives and never hoping for or attempting to creating anything better.>>295698>Your country bans books, movies
Australia also banned small breasts
.>>295708>but at least we're not on the brink of total collapse like the US currently is.
The U.S. isn't collapsing. Actually take a look at where all of the riots took place. Literally every
single one was in Libshit cities, which represent an overwhelming minority of the country. Overall, crime has been on a nearly 30 year decline here.>>296084>People without degrees, almost exclusively Conservatives, tend to ignore facts and make up their own reality.
More like Conservatives are the ONLY
ones who actually have to live in the real world, meanwhile baizuo keep pushing a fantasies that they dreamed up while sucking on a silver spoon.>They attack trans folk,<Sexual deviants who want to guilt trip feminists into having sex with them>minorities,<A plague in EVERY society>women, progress,
Since fucking when?>social support,
Welfare has done nothing EXCEPT
bankrupt economies.>Palestinian rights etc.
To be honest, the entire ME should just be glassed from orbit.>>296112>To be fair of course, you and I probably do things like this on a regular basis as well.
It's called "cognitive dissonance", and everyone is guilty of committing it in some regard. The important thing is that you acknowledge it, learn from it, and improve yourself.>There are plenty of things one can do to learn intellectual humility that don't require you to go hundreds of thousands of dollars into debt and blow 2-8 years of your life in a classroom.
You could also bring up that philosophers like Socrates didn't actually have a "formal education". They just kept asking questions and used deductive reasoning.>What makes a self-study of philosophy insufficient for this?
The only problem with "self-studying" any subject is that you're going into it all on your own and have to mostly figure it out for yourself. Having a mentor, teacher, or tutor can help in this regard (Which was
of learning institutions). However, since the advent of the internet, much of this has become irrelevant as you can receive advise from people online. Although, this still results in the issue that you have to make sure that you're being advised by people who actually KNOW
what they're talking about. Colleges and universities used to avoid this issue because the teacher actually had to be knowledgeable about the subject they were teaching on (And part of the reason why prices were so "high" in the first place, because you were learning from a pro), but times have changed and education administrations have realized that's it's much more profitable to suck the money out of the wallets of gullible idiots while handing them a fake degree.
