>>302788>1- To turn college students against academia and the teachers:>False promises of a good job after graduation. And if the normie gets that job, he/she will be paying for an overpriced training for at least 1/4 to a 1/3 of his life. It's a scam!!!
This is a HUGE redpill for normies if you can explain it to them correctly and get them to understand it. An area to focus on would be just how much money the colleges themselves rake in, and how they make their money.
One of the few things Obama did that I agree with was going after for-profit colleges, ie those small technical schools that charge you $20,000 to learn to be a pharmacy technician or some low-wage bullshit job like that. However, what he failed or consciously refused
to point out is that all
colleges are effectively for-profit even though on paper they are technically non-profit
and they're all a scam. The way it works is that the student goes to the government and asks for a student loan to go to a certain school, the government goes to the school and asks how much it will cost to educate this person for four years, the school pulls a number completely out of its ass, and the government writes them a check for the amount they specified. This is part of why schools will often insist that students live on campus and eat meals there and buy textbooks at their exclusive bookstore and so forth; the goal is to make the experience as expensive as possible, because the government will literally pay any amount they ask for as long as they can provide some flimsy justification for it.
At the end of it, the student owes money to the government, not the school. The school gets paid one way or the other, so it makes no difference to them whether or not the student can afford the loan payments; that's between them and the government. The schools have no obligation whatsoever; the student is on the hook for 100% of the debt. The government essentially writes a blank check, the school fills in the amount, and the student is the mark left holding the bag when it's all over.
It's also worth pointing out that professors are generally very well compensated. It's easy to make fun of all the silly gender-studies type crap that schools offer as programs, but there is serious money in it for the people who play the game right. A tenured professor of lesbian interracial dance therapy or whatever the fuck at an ivy-league university is probably pulling down an income of close to half a million a year, and that's just their base salary from the university. Most of them make additional money on the side from publishing and speaking fees and whatnot, leveraged from the "prestige" of their school's brand name. Once you get to that level in an academic career it's also worth noting that there is very little actual teaching work involved. Most of the grunt work, ie grading papers and giving lectures and doing all of the shit that's actually in a professor's job description, is done by teaching assistants.
On top of that, "tenure" is a concept unique to the academic world, and provides a guarantee of job security that does not exist in any other field. Even corporate CEOs can be removed for poor job performance, but a tenured professor can do literally whatever the fuck they want and is virtually impossible to fire. What's more galling about this than anything is that tenure was originally designed as a way to ensure free speech for academics; it was supposed to guarantee that a university would be unable to fire a professor for saying something controversial that the college dean or the alumni society or whatever might disapprove of. In practice, though, it's basically used as a carrot-and-stick approach to weeding out anyone with non-Marxist views. Professors without tenure are extremely easy to get rid of, and the only way to get tenure is to voice the right opinions for years and years. Basically, if you're an entry-level professor of any subject, regardless of what your actual views might be, your options are either to stick to your principles and get fired, or play ball and maybe end up getting paid a comfy salary to do literally fucking nothing. There is additional pressure here because in order to become a professor in the first place, you need to attend a four year program plus a doctorate program, so odds are you're starting out with massive loan debt of your own. You pretty much have
to play ball just to break even.
tl;dr, college is literally the biggest Ponzi scheme currently being run in America that no one is talking about. It's difficult to get the average NPC to see it this way, because part of the scam is that the school's Marxist doctrine convinces you that "le corporations" or "le 1%" are somehow responsible for your being hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt for the rest of your life, instead of the institution that actually took your money and gave you nothing but a worthless degree in bullshit to show for it. However, if you can actually get them to understand it, absolutely nothing will rustle a person's jimmies harder, particularly a person who is forking over half of their check from Starbucks every month to make loan payments.
