Yet, this time we don't have any revolutions or civil wars coming up for the next 30 years.

In good economic times when the money is flowing, universities are adding courses to expand the scope of the school. Good times are over. Time to trim the fat. Eliminate the "white men are evil" courses among many others. Eliminate professors who do virtually nothing while collecting a big pay check from a government they hate.

I don't advocate educational cuts, but I do advocate modification to "training models within education". the old system of delusion as to preparing people for jobs. Never had a focus or target, it was only a matter where HR divisions were trained to support 'degree labels" as "Get a Job Certificates", which assured University a higher income stream, insured banks more profit from school loans, and Business promoted the concept of 'greed by any means", via their support of professors who were eager to teach "outsourcing stragety", acquisition and mergers" and import profits, while also teaching how to devise collusive policy to support such. (Massive Brainwashing, to ultimately destroy respect and concern for national stability of a nation and its people). Instead it taught, profit by any means including devastation of people lives, distress family unity, cities, infrastructure and community unity, via the model of "import everything and manufactuer nothing). Once upon a time, Manufacturing industry was also a family of workers mentality, who felt unifited through their work at various companies. No longer are people with a sense of employee family unity within any industry, people are now treated like a collective of outcast searching for a sense of belonging; the trust and sense of being valued has been stripped away. Only the administrative team and the executives think of themselves as the only important members of business and industry.

The aim and angle of Education has been a devastation for the American People. The ideology of the mid to late 1960's where people were educated to think of corporate dominance, with little to no regard for city, community, state or region, and the employees were not to be seen in terms of individuals, but as mere roster numbers. The integrity which was once ingrained in the quality standards of industry was devasted and stripped away. People were regarded less than what is the consideration of a machine.
This form of educating has not gone away, it will take a complete revamp of educational ideology, to change the course and direction as to how the young are to be taught.
Sadly, the mega money which buys out the politicians, won't allow that change to happen. Except, the power of the people can push for the change, if and only if people think and act beyond and without being swayed by the political chatter which fills the atomsphere.
