No, just the badly managed ones.

Stupid never works, whether in a capitalist or socialist system.\

Your explanation is as learned as that fellow on the video! Are you from the south?

I also see Brazil on the list. There's a large amount of illegal immigrants from Brazil in my area and they're having a significant impact. That free tuition is so good that millions of their citizens feel the need to illegally enter a country that doesn't have free tuition.

Some of these countries have the highest IQ in the World.

But they aren't as smart as your right wing, Southern, rural, white folks.

You know it all.

That's why Mississippi and Alabama and West Virginia, and Oklahoma are such power house States.

Free education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is right out of the liberal play book. Liberal debating 101:

Deflect

Insult anyone who disagrees

Claim victory

Move along

Okay, I'll pay for your college education but in return I'll send you to Deadhorse, Alaska to work there for 5 years. How does that sound?

You don't know enough to know that the point of the list is it be taken as a whole to give you a general idea of countries that do this.
Keep going. And why are they having a hard time? Come on you can do it!

In any event the relative cost of education has nothing to do with the OP. I know why you would want to change the subject. But do try to stay focused.

College education has become ridiculously expensive in the US, no wonder people want to change that... Education has become a luxury one can hardly live without anymore, though. That's a problem.

(A couple of days ago I read that Germany's short tuition (which was ridiculously low compared to the US anyway, more of a symbolic nature) experiment is about to end after just a few years, colleges and universities will be free again, paid by all Germans and companies via taxes. I suppose that is what that guy in the video might have in mind.)

LOL, he doesn't give a hoot about the expense of college. He is greedy! He cares only about HIS student loans.
