Naturally poor farmers are less likely to immigrate to San Francisco as compared to the wealthy privileged Asians

My point was that in addition to the wise policy of socialism in critical Human Services Asians tend to have a better work ethic then most cultures

Growing up in Hawaii I was immersed in an Asian multinational culture for the majority of my childhood

When I compare it to all the places I've lived in the world it's pretty obvious that Asians have an excellent social structure and work ethic

Once again this thread is about the tenets of socialism

The United States used to have well-funded government-run critical Human Services like police Fire EMS military and Parks and Rec

However since the Reagan Era (the corporate takeover of America) critical Human Services are largely being turned over to the Private sector as a complicated tax theft/labor destroying Chokehold unfolds before our very eyes

Under the term "privatization" corporations with a profit motive are literally taking over the functions of our government with disastrous consequences

Well, how much of that in Hawaii is due to the generally higher level of social services provided by the state, compared with other states?

Asia takes the exact opposite approach...

99 percent of their higher education is controlled funded and administered by the government who is beholden to the peoples Democratic vote!

"In mainland China, nearly all universities and research institutions are public and currently, all important and significant centers for higher education in the country are publicly administered"

"In India, most universities and nearly all research institutions are public. There are some private undergraduate colleges, mostly engineering schools, but a majority of these are affiliated to public universities. Some of these private schools are also partially aided by the national or state governments. India also has an "open" public university, the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), which mostly offers distance education, and in terms of the number of enrolled students is now the largest university in the world with over 4 million students."

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_university

America is being taken over by for-profit interests because the corporations have taken charge via government bribery

The corporations don't want you to have high quality government services they want you to pay them a premium for them while they siphon off your tax dollars

once the corporations have access to your tax dollars they will bleed you dry.

American corporate education is bribing our lawmakers to keep free public education out.

They don't care about America's future they just want Americans go get big loans and give them all the money...

The only thing better (for the education corporations) would be the "school choice" scenario where private schools literally have access to our tax dollars however don't have to worry about the Democratic vote

Blackwater (mercenary proprietor) proprietor eric prince's sister (ditzy betsy devos) has been put in command of education via fake president trump

#HOSTILE corporate takeover USA#

This is not pro socialism
This is anti CORPORATE BRIBE of our government...
East Indians and Asians have an extremely high rate of 2 parent families. They are trained in life before they go to Universities. That's where it starts.

Strawman/Bravo Sierra alert. The right does not support predatory capitalism. However, it supports regular old capitalism. Leftists support Predatory Capitalism, the best example of which is Bill Gates.

Game, Set and Match.

Where do you come up with BS like this^^^. Most schools are run by agencies of government such as School Districts, Cities and States. Private institutions are but a sliver of the overall pie.

That's pretty hard to prove but the fact is Hawaii does have excellent social services and does have some of the lowest violent crime in the world and some of the happiest people

government run schools are quickly being privatized so even though they may claim to be run by the government they are actually pseudo government organizations actually run by a private board of directors but paid for with tax money kind of like the private prison Fiasco

Privatization allows a private Corporation to take our tax dollars just like mercenaries in Iraq
