Sounds to me like you're every bit as brainwashed as you claim college graduates are.

I keep hearing about these liberal college professors. I went to a very liberal Ivy and never heard one political word from any of my professors. I think a lot of people have a warped idea about what goes on in these classrooms. Where are they getting these ideas?

From those who would prefer citizens do not use critical thinking.

Unless you are getting a marketable degree like engineering, business, finance, science, etc go to trade school instead, or be happy working as a "barista", and get some dreads, and tats too.
Ahhh, the kool/aid population is heard from.

This is not rocket science.
Most students / faculty do not engage in social justice issues and that includes UCLA- Berkeley.

Some students/ faculty have historically engaged in activism. Student movements in favor of Civil rights and anti- Viet Nam were huge issues that contributed to change. Nonetheless, most students/ faculty did not engage.

But it sounds better when we expand on a "fabrication" does it not?

Here is one group that is against pursuing a college education:

Quote:
Jehovah’s Witnesses are advised against pursuing a higher education, with the Watchtower regularly providing warnings that attending university is an improper use of time in these last days.
The outcome of these warnings is that Jehovah’s Witnesses have amongst the lowest average education and income levels of any religion in the United States, as shown in independent studies, such as the U.S. Religious Landscape Survey 2008 by the Pew Forum.

The world is not either black or white. Nor is the world composed of only conservatives/republicans and liberals/democrats.

That's fascinating. The one Witness I know fairly well has a degree in EE and is preparing to send his oldest off to college next year.
